Your application should include:
Trustees prefer to receive applications which demonstrate that applicants have mostly exhausted their available avenues of support - eg family, friends, churches, individuals among whom they have been involved in ministry, other trusts, personal savings etc.
Funding for projects
Your application should include
The trustees will also require two references for the main individuals involved in the project. Ideally these should be from people who know both the proposed project and the key individuals involved. Please direct your referees to our briefing notes.
Please direct referees to send references direct to the trust.
The trust gives grants up to £10,000, but rarely provides all the funding for any individual or project; and - because of the nature of the trust’s income - it cannot guarantee funding for more than one year.
Where appropriate, the trustees may express an intention - without commitment - to grant funding for more than one year.
The trustees meet four times a year to consider applications.
The deadline for applications to be considered at this month's meeting has now passed, but applications and supporting references received by the end of December shall be considered at the trustees' first meeting in the New Year.
