As front-line charitable organisations will need more help than ever during the recovery phase of the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond, the Sir George Martin Trust has tightened up its geographical area for funding and will now be focusing its grant-making towards charitable projects which support disadvantaged and vulnerable people in West Yorkshire.

The Trust will give out grants for core, capital and project costs, mainly ranging from £1,000 – £3,000 to registered charities and churches doing outreach work who are working to improve the well-being of residents in their local community. Locally based, West Yorkshire charities will be the top priority, but small national charities who can show they are embedded in the area will be considered. 

For further information visit the Who We Give To and How to Apply pages. If you would like to request an application form, please email our Trust Manager Carla Marshall at or call 01423 810 222 and tell us about your organisation and its work.

The trustees will next meet in early July and mid-October. Applicants should initially get in touch two-three months before each meeting.
