Major Grants are aimed at assisting and supporting the development of well-established Borough and County-wide charitable organisations which deliver services directly to beneficiaries. While there is no minimum/maximum size requirement for the organisation, it is likely to have an income/expenditure of between £500,000-£2,000,000 per annum and have been in operation for at least 5 years.
What We Fund
While the Trustees will give due consideration to all applications, there is a strong preference for applications that will either build capacity and therefore sustainability within the applicant organisation or which will broaden the range of its target beneficiaries. A high volunteer involvement in the applicant organisation is likely to be influential although not essential.
We fund Revenue (‘Core costs’) and Specific Service Delivery Project costs. We will, in exceptional circumstances, fund Capital costs.
