Apply for a Grant

The Roger & Douglas Turner Charitable Trust awards grants to registered charities only.

Appeals will only be considered from charities that have been fully operational for a minimum of 3 years and all appeals must be accompanied by accounts no older than 18 months prior to submission.

Grants may be made to national charities who are headquartered or have a hub in our beneficial area, can demonstrate specific work in the beneficial area (not merely an estimated proportion of overall work) and normally already have a history of grants being received from ourselves.

We provided grants for the core costs of running a charity but those from new beneficiaries should generally not exceed £5,000. Appeals for larger capital or other projects may be considered (principally from applicants previously known to us) once a project’s financial viability is clear; we do not commit to future funding.

If you meet our criteria, please select the application form relevant to your appeal, complete and return it with the supporting papers by email to grants@turnertrust.co.uk . Please note we no longer accept appeals through the post.

All correspondence from the Trust including acknowledgements of receipt and results of appeals will be communicated via the email address provided on the application form.

If your charity’s income is below the Charity Commission threshold for submitting an annual report, please ensure that you enclose a copy of your annual return with your application.
