Tudor Trust has just issued updated guidelines for 2018 / 19. The Trust is a responsive grant maker that particularly wants to help smaller, community-led organisations working to high standards that work directly with people who are at the margins of society – organisations that support positive changes in people’s lives and in their communities.
The Trust aims to provide flexible funding that is responsive to the needs identified by organisations themselves; grants take the form of core funding i.e. including salaries, overheads and day-to-day running costs. Unrestricted funding is occasionally awarded to further an organisation’s charitable objectives.
The Trust is more likely to fund organisations with an annual income of less than £1 million; in practice around 77% of grants awarded went to groups with an annual income of less than £500,000.
There is no maximum or minimum grant, however, grants of less than £10,000 are rare. Grants can cover one, two or three years’ work. It’s a two-stage process with funding requirements discussed in more detail in stage two.
