Yapp Charitable Trust
Of interest to organisations dealing with social welfare & education and learning.
The Yapp Charitable Trust make grants for running costs and salaries to small registered charities in England and Wales to help sustain their existing work.
They only offer grants to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000 who are undertaking work with their priority groups. They only make grants for core funding. They define core funding as the costs associated with regular activities or services that have been ongoing for at least a year. They cannot fund new projects, extra services or additional delivery costs. This includes creating a paid post for work that is currently undertaken on a voluntary basis or rent for premises that are currently cost free.
Their priority groups are:
• Elderly people
• Children and young people aged 5 – 25
• People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges
• Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending)
• Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)
Grants are normally for a maximum of £3,000 per year and they will fund for up to three years. Most of their grants are for more than one year because they like to fund ongoing needs
There are no deadlines – you can apply at anytime.
