Our funding is flexible, and can be used for start up costs, core costs and other projects. We mainly fund causes associated with Hull and East Yorkshire, or the Society of Friends.
We generally give unrestricted grants, for charities to spend at their discretion.
Grants generally fall within the range of between £1,000 and £10,000 although larger grants can be considered. Small grants can be made outside of the scheduled meetings, particularly if there is an element of urgency involved.
Applications should be made by letter or email and these will be considered by trustees at their twice-yearly meetings in May and November. Please ensure your application is received at least a month in advance of these dates.
The Charity has a 'two year rule' for repeat grants. Further appeals will not normally be considered until two years have elapsed since a previous application (whether successful or unsuccessful), except in emergencies.
We have core charities that we support with annual funding, based on a long-term relationship with that organisation.
Our trustees normally review applications twice a year, in November and May, so it may take six months before you receive funds.
If you have an urgent appeal we can approve smaller amounts of up to £2,000 within a few weeks.
Yes we can approve amounts of less than £1,000 for individuals (not charities). Please use the Contact Us form.
