Funding Alerts


Kelly Family Charitable Trust

by | Feb 9, 2018 |

Of interest to Organisations dealing with Families, Sports, Health

The Kelly Family Charitable Trust is interested in funding charities whose activities involve the whole family in initiatives that seek to tackle problems that face one or more of its members, and whose aims include the strengthening of family bonds by helping all elements of the family unit to grow together and support each other.


The following will not be considered:

  • Non-registered charities
  • Individual requests for grants
  • National Charities (only regional projects will be considered)
  • General Appeals
  • Organisations with specific religious or political agendas

What For?

The Trust has decided to prioritise its funding in favour of charities whose activities involve all or most family members in initiatives that support and encourage the family to work as a cohesive unit in tackling problems that face one or more of its members.  The overall objective is to reinforce the potential benefit and support that family members as a unit can give to each other.

Applications are also welcomed from sports and health-related charities whose activities comply with the above criteria.

The Trust will consider both capital and revenue grants.  The Trust is happy to support requests for core funding as well as project-based grants, and actively encourages applications from relatively new organisations to help them become established.

How Much?

Grants will generally be in the range of £1000 – £5000, but Trustees will consider requests for higher amounts.


Grants are awarded twice a year to charities whose aims fall within the criteria of the Trust.

Applications must be submitted by 1st March and 1st September to be considered at the subsequent meeting.  The Trustees will ask for more detail for those applications that pass the initial screening and may visit the projects they wish to support.
