The Ernest Cook Trust offers grants to schools, registered charities and not-for-profit organisations wishing to encourage young people’s interest either in the countryside and the environment, the arts or aiming to raise levels of literacy and numeracy. There are two programmes:
- The small grants programme (under £4,000) supports state schools and small registered charities which would like to undertake projects which meet the Trust’s objectives and require a small amount of pump-priming in order for such projects to take place.
- A larger grants programme for grants in excess of £4,000.
Applications to the small grants programme can be made at any time. The next closing date for applications for the large grants programme is 31st July 2017.
