Preference is given to making grants to assist in funding special projects being undertaken by Charities rather than grants to supplement funds used for general purposes. In considering all appeals for major grants the Trustees will take into account, where appropriate, the Applicant’s Reserves. The beneficial area for grants is not restricted however some preference is given to youth organisations operating in Jersey and the UK. Grants can only be made to trusts, associations, and institutions in the UK and Overseas who are recognized as charitable by the Laws of England and in Jersey at the discretion of the Trustees.
In an average year the Trustees make in the region of 50 individual grants ranging in value from £1,000 to £10,000 typically.
The total value of grants made in each financial year is in the range of £25,000 to £50,000.
