Childs Charitable Trust

Grant Making Trust

The deadline for applications for the April 2019 meeting is 28th February 2019.

Unless you are an ‘excepted’ charity, all applicants must be registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator or the Charity Commission of Northern Ireland.

Our values are based on the Christian faith, and we welcome applications from all Christian based organisations.

A charity’s funding priorities are not always based on specific project costs. We therefore also accept applications for funds to help develop policy, advocacy and research.

All applications are acknowledged on receipt. If you do not receive an email confirmation, please contact us.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A MAXIMUM 1200 CHARACTER LIMIT FOR EACH BOX ON THE APPLICATION FORM
