Eligibility Guidelines

The Trust is unable to accept unsolicited applications

We are keen that applicants do not waste their own time, and our limited resources in applications which have little chance of success, therefore please do not apply to The Trust unless specifically asked to do so.

Grant-making aims

The trustee's objective is to make grants to support projects within the four categories listed below, and to continue funding, where appropriate, many of the organisations where long term relationships have been established.

All available funds are allocated by the trustees; inevitably there are always many more worthwhile causes that cannot be funded by the Trust due to its limited resources.

Who receives our grants?

The Trust mainly gives to UK registered charities and other official charitable organisations.

Charitable categories 

  • Medicine and Health               

  • Social Welfare

  • Education and The Arts

  • The Environment and Wildlife

The allocation between these categories varies from year to year.

How to apply

Please only make an application if you have been invited to do so

In order to be considered for a grant, applicants must complete an application form and send it by post or email to the Trustís office. The trustees meet on a regular basis to consider applications during the year.

Normally the Trust will only consider one project at a time from any organisation.

If your organisation has previously had an application declined, we cannot consider another request for at least twelve months from the date of our decision.

The Trust does not fund:

  • Individuals directly
  • Political activities
  • Commercial ventures or publications
  • The purchase of vehicles including mini-buses
  • Overseas travel, holidays and expeditions
