A proportion of our funds are committed to our Planned Grant-Making programme – through this we make contributions to national charities which the trustees have decided, as a matter of policy, to support on a long term basis. Each year we support 10-12 charities under this programme, working in different fields, with grants of at least £750 each.
Grants are now awarded each year at the February trustees meeting, but the areas of work and the organisations to be considered are reviewed every few years and new organisations may be added – but only on the basis of trustees’ personal recommendations. It follows, that any new applications need to be made to the Responsive Programme.
