Funding

The Mason Trust runs a funding programme to assist individuals, organisations and schools/colleges with projects, ideas and trips. Applicants must be aged 12 - 25 or work with this age group and reside/operate within Norfolk and Suffolk.

The Trust has no minimum or maximum amounts of funding that can be applied for and consider each application received on its own merit however, please be aware that we are a small, self-funding charity and as such are not in a position to award large sums of money. The Trust is unable to cover capital costs for projects.

Please note we are not currently accepting funding applications from Organisations, Schools or Colleges. This decision is regularly under review and any changes will be posted on the website and via our Facebook and Twitter pages. We will accept applications from individuals directly. If individuals wish to apply please visit our Individual Funding page for more information. Meeting dates and associated deadlines for receipt of applications are contained in the table below.

Before submitting your application to the Trust, please ensure that you read our ‘Guide for Applicants’ document. This is updated on a regular basis and must be referred to prior to any applications being made in case there are changes that will affect your submission. Young people can submit applications to us before their 12th birthday so long as they will be 12 years old at the time the activity/trip or project takes place.

Please refer to applicable funding page for further information and application forms.

We do not limit the amount of applications you can make to us however, successful applicants will only receive funding up to a maximum of three times. After which, further applications for grant funding from the same individual/organisation/school/college will be ineligible for consideration.

The table below sets out the meeting schedule together with deadlines for applications (dates are subject to change). You will need to ensure that your application reaches us by the date specified. Applications received after the deadline will be put forward to the next scheduled meeting. If you have a specific date you are working towards for receipt of funding, you must ensure that you allow enough plenty of time for your application to be considered to meet your target date. This information will need to be included within your application. Applications will not be considered outside of the normal meeting schedule.

Dates for Trustees Meetings in 2018 are due to be discussed and agreed at our meeting on 11 October. Once finalised these dates, including deadlines for submission of applications, will be published below.

All applications will be acknowledged in writing. If you have provided us with an email address, it is vital that you check your inbox/junk mail regularly as we may contact you this way. We request that you respond promptly to any emails as any delays in receiving replies may result in your application not being reviewed by the Trustees at chosen meetings. If further information is required we will write requesting such information otherwise, no correspondence will be sent until after the Trustees have met. Depending on when we receive your funding request this may be a number of weeks. Please do not phone us for an update on the progress of your application as we are unable to provide any information or discuss applications over the phone.
