The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation is a medium-sized independent grantmaking foundation which makes grants totalling around £2 million a year to a variety of charitable projects. They fund both charities and charitable organisations, and provide grants for both general running costs and capital projects.
The aim of the foundation is to address local issues in areas of extreme urban deprivation, or in remote and fragile rural communities and have especial interest in funding projects in the following areas:
- Community Support
- Arts, Education and Heritage
They offer ‘Small Grants’ of up to £7,500 and ‘Large Grants’ between £10,000 and £60,000 programmes depending on your organisation’s annual income. You can find out which grants you are eligible in their guidelines, which can be found here.
