The Will Charitable Trust grants office is currently closed and will remain so until government advice changes, but we are working remotely and contactable by email. With the Covid-19 outbreak affecting us all across the UK, the Trustees have decided to suspend all our normal grant programmes. Instead, for the foreseeable future, funding decisions will be taken with a view to helping charities we have previously supported, with their response to, and/or the difficulties caused by the current crisis.
Charities holding unspent (in whole or part) grants for projects or programmes which are now on hold or cancelled must contact us. We wish to support our grantees and reasonable requests for a reallocation or derestriction of funds are likely to be granted, but permission must be sought and given before the funds are used elsewhere.

Charities we have previously supported which face difficulties because of the outbreak and need urgent financial support are invited to contact us. The Trust will consider helping charities who demonstrate an urgent need for emergency funds with grants of normally up to £10,000.
Charities fulfilling the above criteria should email:
All charities are different and applications will vary accordingly, but generally we need answers to the following questions so please do ensure they are covered in your application.
