Frequently Asked Questions - How much can we apply for?

Cost out your project or activity then ask for what you need. But the Trust reserves the right to award grants in full, in part or not at all depending on its assessment of the merits of the application. It is unlikely we will fund requests in full - we would expect to see evidence of efforts being made to raise funds by applicants themselves. In exceptional circumstances, a maximum of up to £25,000 can be applied for or awarded.

The Trust’s decision is final and cannot be appealed.

Yes, up to a maximum of £25,000 but there is no minimum. But no matter how little or how much you need, subject to meeting the criteria on the “How to Apply” page, the Trust will consider your application. It is for Trustees to make offers of monies at their discretion and the Trust reserves the right to award grants in full, in part or not at all depending on its assessment of the merits of the application.

Any decision is final and cannot be appealed.

All awards are for one year or less. If you are successful, you must wait a calendar year before reapplying for further funding. However, you can apply for further funding within that period if it is not to be used for the same purpose as the original application.
