The Yapp Charitable Trust offering grants up to £3,000 per year
Date published: 23/11/2017
The Yapp Charitable Trust has grants of up to £3,000 per year, for up to three years, to support the core running costs of very small registered charities in England and Wales working with a range of beneficiary groups. There are no deadlines.
It offers grants to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000 who are undertaking work with our priority groups:
- Elderly people;
- Children and young people aged 5 – 25;
- People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges;
- Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending);
- Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children).
It does not fund work that does not focus on one of the above priority groups.
It only makes grants for core funding which is defined as the costs associated with regular activities or services that have been ongoing for at least a year. It can not fund new projects, extra services or additional delivery costs. This includes creating a paid post for work that is currently undertaken on a voluntary basis or rent for premises that are currently cost free.
It can only offer grants to registered charities that have been formally established for a minimum of three years. Newly registered charities may apply but the organisation must have appointed a management committee and adopted a governing document at least three years ago.
- Work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders;
- Services that help to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people;
- Applicants that can demonstrate an effective use of volunteers;
- Charities that seek to be preventive and aim to change opinion and behaviour through raising awareness of issues, education and campaigning;
- Applicants that can demonstrate (where feasible) an element of self sustainability by charging subscriptions/fees to service users.
Applications that don't address at least two of the above are unlikely to receive a grant.
