As a Foundation, we understand that the recent issues around the COVID-19 virus may cause uncertainty and disruption at the workplaces of our grantees. We would like to reassure current beneficiaries that we support you, and understand there may be challenges in the near future.

If your community, services or organisation are affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, and you receive grant funding from us, we would like to reassure you of the following:

  • Adapting – we understand that your organisation may experience problems in achieving some of the agreed grant outcomes during this difficult time. We would like to be able to maintain our grant payments to you at originally-agreed levels during this period. Please speak to us if this is something you wish to discuss.
  • Dates– we don’t want to add pressure in this already tense time, so if you think you will struggle to meet a deadline for your report, please contact our Grants Manager, Kerry, at kerry.whiteheaddymond@rankfoundation so we can discuss a more reasonable deadline.
  • Listening to you – we are here if you want to talk to us about the situation you’re facing. If you wish to speak to us, you can call the main office on 0207 834 7731. If you are unable to reach us by phone, please email

The Rank Foundation has signed up to a joint funder statement coordinated by London Funders.  The statement can be viewed here.

If in doubt, please speak to us.
