The Weinstock Fund, based in the Southwest of England, was established by the late Lord Weinstock in 1962 for general charitable purposes. It is a grant-making trust with which he was actively involved until his death in 2002. It was wound up in December 2012 and a successor charity with similar aims created in its place.
The Weinstock Fund’s aims are to support a wide range of charitable causes in England, particularly in the Southwest, in the fields of welfare, children, education, medicine, music and the arts.
The Trustees favour smaller charities and projects. Grants typically range from £2,000 - £5,000 per annum. Multi-year grants up to a maximum of three years are considered.
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.
