Registered charities with an income of less than £100,000 per year can apply for grants of up to £1,000 through the Thomas Wall Trust for projects that meet the educational and social needs of their communities. The Trust is particularly keen on supporting projects that are innovative in some way.
Grant awards are specifically for project costs and the Trust awards grants to approximately 30 organisations each year.
The closing date for applications is the 31st May 2018.
Previous projects supported include:
Devon Development Education which was awarded £1,000 to fund a short intergenerational project about food, with 45 pupils from 2 Exeter primary schools (Wynstream and Montgomery) and 13 members of the older generation.
Campus Children’s Holidays were awarded a grant on £1,000 towards their Residential Project. The project, based in North Yorkshire, provided vulnerable children with the opportunity to participate in activities which would typically not be available to them as a result of poverty or social exclusion.
The Trust can also provide small grants of up to £1,000 to assist people with the cost of training courses that improve their chances of employment.
