Tudor Trust

By | Funding Opportunities | No Comments

Grants are available to smaller community-led groups that support people at the margins of society in the UK, encouraging independence, inclusion and integration.

Tudor makes grants, and provides other types of support, to voluntary and community groups working in any part of the UK. They 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.

There is no maximum or minimum level of grant, although it is unusual for a grant of less than £10,000 to be made. Grants are usually for one, two or three years.

Clore DuffieldMain Grants Programme

By | Funding Opportunities | No Comments

Whilst the Foundation does occasionally make donations to the health and social care sectors, it should be noted that the majority of its support is directed towards the cultural sector, and in particular to cultural learning and to museum, gallery, heritage and performing arts learning spaces. Support for enhancing Jewish life has largely been directed towards JW3: London’s Jewish Community Centre.

Applications are reviewed and rejected on an ongoing basis, although all successful grants can only be awarded at meetings of the Trustees. These are held twice a year, usually in June and December. Grants range from £10,000 to in excess of £1m, although larger grants are made infrequently. The majority of expenditure is for capital projects – only a small number of grants are made each year for programme funding.

Please note that organisations must be registered charities to be eligible for the Main Grants Programme, with the exception of local authority cultural organisations. Every year the Foundation receives many more requests than can ever be granted, and like most grant-making organisations, has to turn down many of the applications received. Applicants are therefore encouraged to apply to multiple funding sources, and not just to this Foundation.
