Our 2021/2022 grants programme
Until further notice, applications can now be made to either of two funding streams:
Project funding Charities which are within our eligibility criteria may apply for project funding as in previous years, but with significant changes mainly to the timing of applications. You must read the guidance for all applicants.
Covid recovery, core/ongoing costs Charities which are within our eligibility criteria may apply for core funding/ongoing costs but must demonstrate a clear need for unrestricted rather than project funding. This need might be related to the pandemic because we understand that incomes streams will be affected for some time and reserves will have been substantially depleted. As before, we will also accept applications from charities which can demonstrate they are not in a position to present new projects or programmes for funding and can convince us that their circumstances warrant an unrestricted grant. You must read both the guidance for all applicants and the additional guidance for those applying under this programme.
Please note that the WCT grants office is staffed on occasion during the working week, but staff also continue to work remotely and should be contacted by emailing email@example.com. We are happy to receive queries about potential applications.
We are making changes to the way we operate, on an experimental basis. For the time being we must ask you please to read all the relevant pages on the remainder of our website, but note the following changes:
Note: if we receive a very large volume of applications, we may have temporary closed periods which will be posted on this site, so please check immediately before applying.
