Skelton Bounty Opens to Applications

The Skelton Bounty is now open to applications. Applicants can apply from within the geographical County of Lancashire, as it existed in 1934.

The fund supports “Lancashire” charities, particularly favouring equipment for organisations supporting the elderly and people with disability and for youth groups, and holidays for disadvantaged children and carers.

The trustees prefer to make grants of a capital rather than a revenue nature. They are inclined to favour specific capital projects of proven viability rather than making contributions to general expenditure. It is their preferred policy to make relatively modest grants to a wide number of applicants rather than large grants to a small number of applicants.

Grants are only made to legally constituted, registered charities. Grants are not made to individuals. Applications from charities in successive years are not viewed favourably. The Governors do not usually fund large building appeals or revenue expenditure

Deadline for completed applications: Wednesday 31 May 2017, 5pm

Applications are considered at the Trustees’ meeting in July.
