The Trust funds work under five priority categories of Arts & Heritage, Education, Environment, Heath, and Social or Economic Disadvantage.
Who can apply?
- Registered charities in the UK
- Organisations that have recently applied for charitable status in the UK
- Exempt Charities such as recognised educational institutions and government or municipally funded museums
- Community Interest Companies (CICs)
- Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs)
Grants are generally between £2,500 and £25,000 and made as single payments.
In some cases, larger grants are awarded in instalments, payable over a period of years, usually on the condition that satisfactory progress reports are submitted at regular intervals.
A follow-up report is expected within 10 months of payment from any applicant in receipt of an award of £20,000 or more.
Applicants may apply for support towards:
- capital projects
- specific projects
- research programmes
- core costs
- Applications must be for charitable purposes that fall into one of the five core categories above.
- Very few restrictions are imposed on the purpose for which a grant may be used; however, the Trust does not fund expeditions or projects that promote religion.
Deadline: 31 July 2020
