Deadline: 14 May 2016
The Scurrah Wainwright Charity is currently accepting applications for its grants program, in support of a wide range of charitable projects with an emphasis on social reform and tackling the root causes of Social Inequity.
Typically, grants size lies between £1,000 and £5,000.
The Charity has three programmes:
- Yorkshire: Trustees give priority to applicants working in the Yorkshire region. An organisation need not be based in the region but the project itself must directly benefit the Yorkshire community. The national charitable organisations are funded only if the project is specifically working in the Yorkshire region, with clear evidence of local control and access to the grant.
- Southern Africa, particularly Zimbabwe.
- Projects that have applied to the Andrew Wainwright Reform Trust because they meet the AWRT’s broad objectives to work for a just and democratic society and to redress political and social injustices, but have not been able to proceed with an application to that Trust because they are eligible for charitable funding.
An organisation does not have to be a charity to apply, but its work must satisfy the Charity Commission’s definition of charitable purposes and public benefit.
