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. Its grant programmes supports both charities and individuals (with grants to individuals made via providing funds to a local organisation rather given directly to the individual)
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.
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.
Grants given are usually in the region of around £500 to £10,000.
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.
