Welcome to the

Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity


The Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity is committed to supporting

Education, Healthcare, Heritage and Arts.     Our aim is

"To Make A Difference"

We will provide support to charity organisations where we seek to be a catalyst to unlock other funding sources for good causes and ensure sustainability and transformational change.

In addition, we will provide support to individuals who wish to further their education primarily in the Music and Arts sectors and for young people (normally based within the geographic area) performing charity work overseas.

With immediate effect and until further notice we are


due to the Coronavirus situation

but please do try the National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) who may be able to assist.

We have no affiliation or connection with NLCF but believe they are offering

grants specifically related to the Covid 19 crisis


Our own Charity has been overwhelmed with applications and we do not have the staff

available to keep up with demands

Applications for individual UK educational grants for 2020 are now closed (as at 31 May 2020).

Please note for educational grants we will only accept applications from UK based individuals studying within the UK (subject to a geographical area).  Applications from educational organisations will not be considered for student bursaries.


For overseas students we will not consider applications to attend overseas educational establishments - UK based only and subject to the geographical area

All other applications are ongoing and open all year round - please read the Guidelines to see if you are eligible to apply.

Please do not telephone or email for updates on submitted applications. Thank you

The Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity are proud supporters of XHOSA COLE
