Congratulations on being awarded a grant from Moorfields Eye Charity! Here’s our useful how-to guide for managing your grant with us.

The charity’s Grants and Research Team are responsible for both the processing of grant applications and management of awards. 

Detailed below are some of the key steps you will need to follow to activate and manage your award. You should also refer to your award letter, grant conditions or award cover email as these will include details specific to your award.

Starting a grant

  • The notional grant start date and grant duration will be specified in your award letter.
  • The actual grant start date can normally be deferred by up to 12 months.
  • The actual start date should be entered into the Grant Activation Form.
  • The duration of the grant will remain unchanged unless a change is requested, in writing, by the grant holder and approved by the charity.

Grant Acceptance

It is a condition that your Host Organisation will administer the grant in accordance with the purposes for which it has been awarded. The grant cannot be activated until this confirmation has been received by the Charity. 

Your award letter will include the necessary sections to be completed for accepting an award. Once signed, the award letter should be returned to moorfields.eyecharity.researchgrants@nhs.net as soon as possible.

The Charity will not accept liability for any expenses incurred on the grant until a signed award letter and confirmation of grant activation form has been returned.

Grant Activation

A grant application form is used to confirm the actual date from which the grant will start. The form should be completed and returned as instructed in your award letter.
