The Tudor Trust makes grants, and provides other types of support, to voluntary and community groups working in any part of the UK. We particularly want to help smaller, community-led organisations that work directly with people who are at the margins of society: organisations that support positive changes in people’s lives and in their communities.
We are particularly interested in supporting work that develops and promotes the social connections and relationships which make such an important contribution to the well-being and quality of life of individuals, and which strengthens communities.
We are much more likely to fund groups with an annual income of less than £1 million. In practice the majority of the organisations we support are much smaller than this: last year 77% of our grants went to groups with an annual income of less than £500,000. We can only fund work which is charitable, but you do not need to be a registered charity to apply to us – we do not however make grants to individuals.
Because we try to respond to the needs identified by organisations themselves, many of our grants take the form of core funding: funding which goes towards the core costs of running an organisation, including salaries, overheads and day-to-day running costs. Sometimes we may decide to offer unrestricted funding, through a grant which can be used entirely freely to further an organisation’s charitable objectives.
We can also provide project grants, capital grants for buildings or equipment and grants to help strengthen your organisation. In some situations we may look at making a short-term loan if this is the most helpful solution and you can demonstrate how you can pay it back: if you are interested in loan funding please ring the Information Team on 020 7727 8522 for advice before making an application.
Tudor has no deadlines – we make grants on a rolling basis and so you can apply at any time.See the website for more information.
