GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS

As a grant-making charity, we provide grants to fund projects and activities carried out by other charities. We receive many 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.


Who may apply?
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.

You are expected to follow a Safeguarding Policy in accordance with Charity Commission guidance.


Which countries does the Weinstock Fund support?
We tend to restrict our funding on a geographical basis to the UK.


What type of work does the Weinstock Fund support?
We particularly support charities working in the following areas:


We tend not to support research projects or hospices that have not previously received funding from us.


How do we apply?
You should 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 will need to be attached to your application in electronic format:


Please give us sufficient information to allow us to evaluate your application against the many others we receive.

Once you have completed and submitted your application you will receive an automated confirmation of receipt by email.


How long will it take to consider our application?
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. The Trustees meet three to four times each year. We will always inform you of the result of your appeal, but it may be several months before you hear from us.

If appealing for funding for a time-dependent project your application must be submitted at least six months in advance of the start of the project.


When can we re-apply?
You may re-apply a year after receipt of a grant or notification of an unsuccessful appeal.


Privacy
Your email address will be used to send you an acknowledgement and a copy of your application form, once you have submitted it, and for other correspondence relating to your application. Any personal data which you provide in your application will be processed in accordance with our privacy policy.
