If you are thinking of applying for a grant, please read the following criteria carefully. By law the Trustees can only make grants in accordance with the Memorandum and Articles of Association. Applications not meeting these criteria cannot be considered.
The considerations which any application has to satisfy are:
• To establish, promote, equip, maintain and support any charitable undertaking or object in or for the benefit of the inhabitants of Maidstone and areas within the county of Kent.
• Maintain support of public parks and open spaces, museums and other buildings, and other amenities for the promotion of mental, moral and physical education and health within the above mentioned area.
In addition, the Trustees have to satisfy themselves that the grant will be properly spent.
Grants have generally been awarded in the range of £1,000 - £5,000. The Trustees hold quarterly meetings in January, April, July and October, and review applications at each meeting. Applications should reach the Secretary to the Trustees by the first of the month prior to the next quarterly meeting.
