As a general grant making trust, the trustees are interested in and support a diverse range of charities. Please see the various categories under Eligibility for a Grant and FAQs for more information.
The Trustees support capital projects only, not running costs. There is a preference to support projects related to the fabric of a building, rather than non-durable items subject to wear and tear such as furniture, appliances, musical instruments and IT.
Projects with a total budget of under £5,000 should not apply.
Applicants must be charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales, with their beneficiaries based in these countries, or have accepted/exempt status. Applications are considered from all areas of England and Wales, particularly for rural and isolated communities. On receipt of an application a Trustee or staff member may wish to conduct a visit in order to complete their assessment, prior to any decision being made.
