The six trustees bring with them a range of skills to administer the trust, ie, education and health, charity and business administration.
The trustees have completed a set of Guidelines which reflect their preferred focus for grant allocation which comply with the objects of the Trust.
The ‘Objects’ are intended to help applicants from Registered Charities (not individuals) assess whether they are eligible for consideration of a grant. Application is by competitive process and the trustees’ decision will reflect their assessment of each application and the balance of demand and funds available. If you do not hear from us following your application it means that, on this occasion, your request has been rejected. However, should this be the case please accept our apologies and feel free to reapply in the future. The Trustees’ decision is final and further negotiation will not be entered into.
