IMPORTANT POLICY CHANGE
We are aware that the current economic climate is making life very difficult in the charitable sector. Unfortunately, our resources have not increased in line with the number of applications we now receive. The number of applications received and considered has increased 200% in the last 5 years.
In order to ensure that the maximum amount of income possible is available for grants rather than administration, and to save charities from making unsuccessful applications, we have decided to change the three-year priorities. In particular, we have decided, reluctantly, to make no further grants to overseas projects after 2011.
Trustees' meetings are usually held between 4 and 6 weeks of the
submission deadlines. A list of successful charities will be posted on the
website as soon as possible after these meetings. Please check this list to
see if your organisation has been successful as it takes some weeks for
written confirmation to reach all applicants.
