- for one-off expenditure
- for projects or capital expenditure (this could include sessional costs and volunteer costs)
- to charities focussed on good causes
The trustees are also willing to consider particular needs caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and by adapting to new ways of working.
Grants are not made to individuals.
Grants are not made for salaries or other recurring costs.
Applications from charities in successive years are not viewed favourably.
The trustees do not usually fund large building appeals or revenue expenditure.
