Aims/priorities: The Newby Trust was formed with aim of achieving improvements in the areas of education and social and medical welfare. In recent years, the Trust has given around £300,000 a year in grants to achieve these aims The Trust grant programme supports the following areas:
- Social Welfare
Alongside these aims the Trust also offers Special Category grants. This category changes on an annual basis and details can be found on the Trust’s website
Grant amount: Grants given are usually in the region of around £500 to £10,000
Who can apply? Its grant programmes support both charities and individuals (with grants to individuals made via providing funds to a local organisation rather given directly to the individual)
The Trust only supports applications from registered charities and has a preference to applications from small to medium sized charities with an income of less than £1,000,000. Larger charities will however be considered but are less likely to be supported.
Application process: The Trust does not have a formal application form and invites interested charities to submit an introduction via email. If the project is of interest to the Trust you will be asked to submit a formal proposal in writing.
