This Week's Funding News w/c 7th August 2017

New or Updated Funding Initiatives

True Colours Trust: Small Grants UK Programme

The Trustees welcome unsolicited applications for their small grants (up to 10K) programmes, both in the UK and in Africa. Trustees are keen to make these programmes available to as many organisations as possible; it is therefore unlikely that they will fund any organisation in consecutive years.

Jephcott Charitable Trust

JCT makes grants for charitable purposes in four main areas of funding: population control, the natural environment, education and health.  Preference is given to charities or projects which are having difficulty getting started, or raising funds from other sources. This often means that the Trust is funding capital projects, e.g. for equipment or materials, rather than running costs. Grants are made to charities in all parts of the world.
