How to apply
Application is only by this online form, which is open yearly from 1st August to around 20th August. Please make sure your project falls within the criteria below before applying.
Focus for 2017
Our August online application process has been very successful and is now in its 5th year. Application this year will be for up to 8 grants of up to £4000 although we may do less or more. We wish to support capital equipment purchases or building refurbishment which provide benefit to the aged or the disadvantaged or disabled. We wish to encourage projects that increase engagement for the benefit of both individuals and society. Ideally we can be used for matched funding to unlock further funds. Last year we had over 4oo applications by the 20th August when we closed and gave 10 grants. We will give priority to smaller charities, those with annual charitable donations of less than £1 million, and we only want a maximum of one page applications. Please keep it simple and enjoy doing it. In simple terms it is likely that short applications do better. If we want more information we will contact you. You will be informed in October of our decisions. Please do not chase us.
- Charities must be UK registered but can operate anywhere in the world.
- We prefer smaller charities where the impact of our money will not get lost and will influence the lives of many- maximum annual charitable donations should be £1 million.
- If your charity has already received support from the trust, we will contact you directly. You should not reapply here.
You can contact us by email only on firstname.lastname@example.org WE DO NOT RESPOND TO OR ACKNOWLEDGE LETTERS – Sorry!
