In light of COVID-19, the Trust have now made the decision that for the immediate future (and including the June and October Board meetings), grant-making will be focused on:
(a) charities which meet their funding criteria and are well-placed to support vulnerable communities through this crisis (previous grant recipients will be prioritised, but the Trust may consider new charities to them as an exception)
(b) supporting charities with which they have an existing relationship to overcome funding challenges caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
When considering applications, they will be interested in understanding whether or not applicants have explored all the options for financial support, including government schemes and emergency funds. They would hope to see applicants investigating all possible avenues of support, and are happy to signpost to potential sources of funding if this is useful.

The Dulverton Trust is an independent grant-making charity. We support UK charities and CIOs (charitable incorporated organisations) tackling a range of social issues, protecting the natural world, and preserving heritage crafts.
Current priorities fall under the following themes:
- Youth opportunities
- General welfare
- Peace & humanitarian support
- Community Foundations
- Special projects
The Trust awards both single year and multi-year grants.
- Single year grants are typically between £25,000 and £35,000.
- Multi-year grants are usually for a period of 2-3 years, and are only awarded to charities which have previously received a Dulverton grant.
- They also award smaller grants via their community foundation partners.
Please note they will provide support for salaries where they form part of an application for project or core costs, but do not support applications for named posts.
