The Trust will consider applications from charities registered in England & Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland in the fields of Education & Young People, Communities, Environment & Conservation, Health, Arts & Culture, International Development, Heritage, and Supporting the Armed Forces
The Schroder Charity Trust generally makes grants of up to £5,000. In 2019/20 the average grant was £4,368. They receive between 400-500 applications each year and approximately 100 charities receive grants, meaning there is a 1 in 5 success rate (i.e. of every 5 applications received, 1 will receive funding). They fund both core costs and specific projects, but not large capital appeals. Grants are usually for a one-year period, rather than over multiple years.
The Schroder Charity Trust will not support:
- Animal Welfare Organisations
- Political Organisations
- Major Capital Appeals
- Social Enterprises or CICs (unless they are also a registered charity)
