Assisting charitable trusts

The Foundation provides services to private charitable trusts who want to award grants but who lack the resources (such as time or staff) to do so.

Full or bespoke service

If we are providing a full service, we will design application forms in the trust’s name, create a dedicated space on our website, promote a trust’s grant scheme, process applications, carry out due diligence, and – after the applicant has met our Grants Panel – make a recommendation to trustees as to whether payment is appropriate. We can then arrange payment, organise PR, and in due course prepare an impact report for trustees’ consideration.

We are happy to create a bespoke service based on any combination of the above.

The Foundation charges an administration fee calculated with reference to the type of service that it offers.
