Funding for organisations

Please note we are not currently accepting applications from organisations. This decision is regularly under review and any changes will be posted on the website and via our Facebook and Twitter pages.

If you currently work with or are looking to work with young people aged 12-25 years old throughout Norfolk and Suffolk and require funding for your project then maybe we can help you.

The Trust is not able to cover capital costs for projects. 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.

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

All applications must include a fully completed, signed application form.

When applying for funding you will need to include the following information for consideration:

  • A full description of your idea/project or trip including any specific timescales/dates. 
  • A breakdown of associated costs.
  • A copy of your latest set of accounts. If you are a regional division of a national organisation and would usually only submit a set of accounts relating to the national organisation, this is not sufficient for Trustees consideration. We would also require sight of a set of accounts/financial statements specifically related to the regional division.
  • Letters or supporting statements from young people who will benefit or have previously benefitted from participating in the project/trip.
  • A list of names of participants.
  • Details of fundraising undertaken and amounts raised or are expected to raise.
  • As much supporting information in relation to your idea/project or trip.
To avoid any delays it is important that you provide all the information requested. If your application is incomplete it may be reviewed by the Trustees however, a final decision will not be made until all the information is received to complete your application

A table which sets out the meeting schedule together with deadlines for applications will be reinstated once a decision has been made on when we will start accepting applications again. 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.

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.

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

If you are applying for funding for the same trip you must allow a 12 month period between applications, e.g The Mason Trust funds a trip which takes place in June 2016 - another application for the same trip could not be submitted for consideration until June 2017. Applications will go through the normal process for consideration.

Please be aware that previous success in securing funding from us does not guarantee that you will be successful in securing funding again.
