Yapp Charitable Trust - Deadline: Rolling

Tuesday, 31 August 2021

Funding

We only offer grants to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000, who are undertaking work with our priority groups:

 Elderly people;

 Children and young people aged 5-25;

 People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges;

 Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than a medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending);  Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children).

We will not fund work that does not focus on one of the above priority groups.

We prioritise:

 Work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders;

 Services that help to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people;

 Applicants that can demonstrate an effective use of volunteers;

 Charities that seek to be preventative and aim to change opinion and behavior through raising awareness of issues, education and campaigning;

 Applicants that can demonstrate (where feasible) an element of self-sustainability by charging subscriptions/fees to service users.

Applicants that do not address at least two of the above are unlikely to receive a grant.

We only make grants for ongoing core funding. We define core funding as the costs associated with regular activities or services that have been ongoing for at least a year. We cannot fund new projects, extra services or additional delivery costs.

This includes creating a paid post for work that is currently undertaken on a voluntary basis or rent for premises that are currently cost free. We can only offer grants to registered charities that have been formally established for a minimum of three years. Newly registered charities may apply by the organisation must have appointed a management committee and adopted a governing document at least three years ago.
