1. Check that your organisation meets our criteria on the Who We Give To page and review the case studies on the Recent Recipients page to get a better idea of the sort of charities we support.

2. Please email info@sirgeorgemartintrust.org.uk or telephone 01423 810 222 and our Trust Manager, Carla Marshall will send you our Resilience Funding application form. It helps if you tell us a little bit about your organisation, your work and your current financial situation first.

3. Post or email the application with the requested information.

DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS OUR TRUST MANAGER IS UNABLE TO MAKE VISITS BUT THE TRUSTEES WILL HOLD CONFERENCE CALLS/MEETINGS IN JUNE AND SEPTEMBER 2020 TO DECIDE ON GRANTS TO BE MADE.

Other useful information:

  • The Trustees meet in March, late June/early July and November of each year, but due to the number of applications received, we recommend making initial contact with our Trust Manager 3-4 months before each meeting. If an application meets the Trust’s initial criteria, our Trust Manager will be in touch to arrange a telephone call or visit in order for her to find out further information on the project. Each application and the Trust Manager’s report will then be reviewed by our seven trustees.
  • The Trust does not normally repeat grants to any charity in any one year, and the maximum number of consecutive grants is usually three. The Trust prefers to adopt a one-off policy in terms of its giving.
  • Applications that are relevant will be acknowledged and successful applicants will be told following the meeting. Unsuccessful applicants are generally informed by email.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our Trust Manager, Carla Marshall, if you have any questions. Our contact details are:
