Applications for funding support

Throughout the year we receive many speculative applications for funding support. This page gives you more information on how to approach INEOS for funding.

Due to the volume of requests received, we now only accept applications to be made through our online form (accessible below), and can only respond to applications which we believe may be of interest and we’re keen to hear a bit more about.  

The INEOS Charitable Committee reviews applications on a rolling basis, and where relevant may award funding to exceptional activities which align with our giving priorities and positively impact the communities around our sites. Funding is awarded at the discretion of the Committee, and decisions made by the Committee are final.

Please ensure you have read the Charities and Foundations pages on and are familiar with our charitable giving priorities and areas of operation before making a speculative request to us.

We may consider supporting additional charitable activities relevant to our philanthropic priorities (in HealthEducationConservation and Community), which are located in communities around our network of sites and businesses.

Please also note that we do not fund individuals making requests for personal financial support in any circumstances, or to political or religious groups.

Please do not submit more than one application for the same funding request- this will not result in faster feedback should we be keen to hear more about your initiative. Please also note that due to the volume of applications we receive, we will only be able to reply to you if your application may be something we’re keen to hear more about. We will regularly review all applications received, so if you have not heard from us within 4 weeks of submitting your application, unfortunately the application has not been successful.
