Are we Eligible?
It should be understood that the great majority of proposals are unsuccessful. The trustees wish to discourage charities from wasting time and resources on applications that fall outside the trusts’ remit.
The trusts only fund registered charities or activities with clearly defined charitable purposes. None of the trusts directly supports individuals, education fees or expeditions.
The following trusts: Ashden, Gatsby, Glass-House, Mark Leonard, Staples (except for The Frankopan Fund) and Tedworth do not consider applications as they proactively seek out their own proposals. Linbury does not generally make grants in response to unsolicited applications. Monument is close to spending out its endowment and only considers new grants to charities with which it already has a close association.
In addition Woodward has an application form on its website for grants in clearly defined areas. The True Colours website has a link to its application form for small grants, and the Headley webpage has a link to application forms for The Headley Museums Archaeological Acquisition Fund and for small grants providing practical aids to disabled people. The Frankopan Fund (Staples) provides small grants to exceptionally talented students from Croatia to further their studies, details of which can be found on the Frankopan page.
