Trusthouse Charitable Foundation

Trusthouse gives grants for running costs or one-off capital costs to charities and not-for-profit organisations in accordance with criteria that are regularly reviewed and decided by the Trustees.

The overarching themes are Rural Issues and Urban Deprivation.

Within these overarching themes, they are interested in two areas:

Community Support: For example: work with young people; community centres; support for carers; older people’s projects; help for refugees; family support; community transport; sports projects; rehabilitation of ex-offenders; alcohol and drug misuse projects; domestic violence prevention and aftermath; support groups for people with disabilities.

Arts, Education and Heritage: For example: arts projects for people with disabilities; performance or visual arts with a clear and strong community impact; alternative education projects; supplementary teaching; heritage projects in marine or industrial areas which involve local people and have a demonstrable community benefit.

If you are looking for a grant for running costs – which includes salaries, overheads
and project costs:

  • for Small grants of £2,000 to £7,500 your total annual income must be less
    than £250,000
  • for Major Revenue grants of £7,500 to £20,000 for 1-3 years your total annual
    income must be less than £500,000.
  • If you are part of or affiliated to a larger organisation with an annual income
    above these limits, you must have your own accounts and confirm that you are
    not able to use the funds of the larger organisation.

If you are looking for a grant for capital costs – which are one-off costs for building
projects, including buying a building, repairing it or fitting it out:

  • for Small grants of £2,000 to £7,500 your total annual income must be less
    than £250,000
  • for Major Capital Grants of £7,500 to £60,000 your total annual income must
    be less than £500,000.

For all capital grants, the total project cost must be less than £2 million.
