GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS/FAQs
As a grant-making charity, we provide grants to fund projects and activities carried out by other charities. We receive many different applications for funding so, for an application to be considered by the Trustees and for it to have the best chance of success, applicants should note the following.
We will only consider applications from UK charities registered with the Charity Commission, or charities holding a Certificate of Exemption from the Inland Revenue. We do not accept applications from individuals.
We tend to restrict our funding on a geographical basis to the UK.
We support charities working in the following areas:
- Medical care and treatment, including respite care and hospices
- Care for physically and mentally disabled adults and children
- Education and training for adults and children with physical and learning disabilities
- Care and support of the elderly
- Care and support for children
- Music and the Arts
We tend not to support research projects.
You should complete an Application Form and send us TWO copies, together with ONE copy of the following information about your organisation:
- Current year’s summary income and expenditure budget
- Most recent annual report
- Most recent accounts
Please give us sufficient information to allow us to evaluate your application against the many others we receive.
The completed form should be sent to:
THE WEINSTOCK FUND
PO Box 2318
Batches of appeals are considered on a rolling basis, thus there are no deadlines for submission. Only if the Trustees are not unanimous will an application be taken to the next available meeting for further discussion. We will write to you with the result of your application as soon as possible, although it is likely to be several weeks before you hear from us. The Trustees meet 3 – 4 times each year.
You can re-apply after a year. We do not accept repeat applications within 12 months, whether or not they have been successful.
