Charitable Organisations

Charitable organisations can be situated either in the UK or overseas but must be registered as a charity with the UK Charity Commission and will principally be educational bodies or aid organisations involved in projects supporting educational and development initiatives, including the promotion of world peace and development. All grants made by the Trust are project based and must have an educational aim, element or content. In general the Trustees will not consider applications for core funding or the construction of buildings in the UK. Overseas, however, the Trustees will consider funding aid projects e.g. water treatment, food and medical supplies or the provision of basic facilities that are the pre-requisite of an educational or development initiative.

Grants made to charities during the year will vary both in size and amount, and will probably total between £5 million and £6 million. The amount of the grant is entirely at the discretion of the Trustees and no reason for giving, withholding or offering a partial grant will be made.
