GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS
The Weinstock Fund makes grants to fund projects and activities carried out by other charities.
Intending applicants must note the following:
The Trustees consider applications from UK-registered charities and exempted charities. The Weinstock Fund does not accept applications from individuals.
The Trustees prioritise charities that the Weinstock Fund has supported historically. An application by a charity not benefitted by the Weinstock Fund since 2018 is unlikely to succeed.
Unless the Weinstock Fund has supported your charity in or since 2018, your application is very unlikely to succeed if:
- your charity has a gross income of more than £2m per annum
- your charity is a hospice or focuses on campaigning or research
- your charity has a full-time employee earning more than £100,000 per annum
- you are a charity with an income of more than £1m per annum but you have not registered with the Funding Regulator
The Weinstock Fund supports charities working in the following areas:
- Medical care and treatment, including respite care
- Education, training and care for adults and children with impairments and special needs
- Care and support of the elderly
- Care and support for children
- Hardship alleviation
- Culture and environment
- Health and welfare
- Music and the arts
You must register first in order to complete your application online Registration & Online Application
. You will then be asked to check your eligibility for a grant by answering five brief questions.
The following documents must be uploaded in electronic format:
- Most recent annual report and financial accounts
- Income and expenditure budget for the project/activity
- Safeguarding policy
Once you have completed and submitted your application you will receive an automated confirmation by email that it has been received.
You will be able to check progress by logging back into your application. Applications may take several months to process.
You must notify the Weinstock Fund if the contact for your application or contact details at your charity change after you have submitted your application. If you do not do so your application may be jeopardised.
You may re-apply a year after receipt of a grant or notification of an unsuccessful appeal.
Your email address will be used to send:
- an acknowledgement
- a copy of your application form, once submitted
- other correspondence relating to your application
