Applications may be made to the correspondent, Mr. P.B. Shone, at any time by letter (not by e-mail) until 30th June 2018. Applications should be addressed to the correspondent by name and sent to the address shown on the contact page. Enquiries prior to any application may be made by e-mail.
There is no application form. Applications should be accompanied by the latest Report & Accounts of the applicant organisation. If these are very bulky, in the interest of economy they will be examined on the Charity Commission website instead.
The Trustees receive a very substantial number of appeals each year. It is not their practice to acknowledge appeals, and they prefer not to enter into correspondence with applicants other than those to whom grants are being made or from whom further information is required. Only successful applicants are notified of the outcome of their application.
Applicants should note from the Guidelines section that grants from 2017 income will be decided in the early part of 2018, according to long-established procedure. There will be a final opportunity to make applications up to 30th June 2018, after which it will be too late to apply.
