Childs Charitable Trust

Grant Making Trust

The Childs Charitable Trust is a grant-making trust, supporting Christian UK registered charities and organisations working both in the UK and overseas.

The trust has two principal sources of income. Firstly, the trust has a stock of property mainly in and around the Eastbourne area. Secondly, the trust has an equity portfolio professionally managed by a firm of stockbrokers.

We receive many hundreds of applications throughout the year and whilst all are considered, it is impossible to respond positively to them all. The Trustees do all they can with the resources available to them.

We are keen to support projects that demonstrate a Christian approach to their work.

The primary focus for grants allocated in 2022 will be on those organisations who actively share the Christian gospel in their work.

The ‘Apply for funding’ page will provide all the information needed to discover if your project matches our new funding criteria.

Please note: The Trustees do not currently accept funding requests for:

  • New builds, repair, refurbishment, renovation projects, or fixtures & fittings.
  • Foodbanks.
  • Street Pastors/Wardens
  • GAP Year projects.
