About Harry Payne Fund

The Harry Payne Fund was founded in 1939 (as the Harry Payne Trust) by Harry Payne, a Birmingham businessman. He was a man of strong faith – a pacifist who spent some years in prison in the first world war. His business was one of the early models of co-partnership and profit sharing. He had a particular interest in helping the disadvantaged and in helping the smaller causes where a modest donation can be seen to make a difference. The current members of the selection panel try to follow these principles in their grant making decisions. We therefore restrict the giving to organisations with an income of less than £500,000.

The panel meets four times a year, it is suggested if applicants are concerned about the timing of submitting an application to contact the HoECF grants team on 024 7688 3297.

The Harry Payne Fund will not part fund large capital projects.
