Grants are available to smaller charitable and not-for-profit organisations in the UK to fund community support, arts, education and heritage projects in areas of extreme urban deprivation or remote, socio-economically deprived rural areas.
The Foundation offers the following support:
Grants for revenue costs (including salaries, overheads and project costs):
- Small grants of £2,000 to £7,500 for one year.
- Major grants of £7,500 to £20,000 per year for one to three years.
Grants for capital costs (one-off costs for building projects, including buying a building, repairing it or fitting it out):
- Small grants of £2,000 to £7,500.
- Major grants of £7,500 to £60,000.
Applications are submitted via the Trusthouse Charitable Foundation’s website (http://trusthousecharitablefoundation.org.uk/).
Applicants must first answer a few eligibility questions before being able to complete and submit the online application forms. There are three forms:
- Small Grants
- Major Grants
- Village Halls/Community Centres.
Small Grants applicants should receive a final decision within four to six weeks of receipt of application (assuming no further information is required).
Major Grants applicants will be informed in six to eight weeks if their application will be included on the agenda of the next available Grants Committee meeting and usually informed of the decision within one week of the meeting.
