Golsoncott Foundation Grants

The Golsoncott Foundation was established as an arts-funding trust to promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the public in the arts generally and in particular the fine arts and music.

The trustees’ overriding concern is to support those projects that demonstrate and deliver excellence in the arts, be it in performance, exhibition, artistic craft, or scholarly endeavour.

Colwinston Charitable Trust

The Trust distributes grants (grant value varies) to charities working predominantly in the areas of Opera, Music and the Visual Arts, and is primarily directed towards the support of activity that benefits Wales.

The Trust is especially interested in projects that demonstrate excellence in the relevant field.

Collaborative projects that assist organisations to share costs, skills and expertise, and that extend the range and reach of the activity to be funded are of particular interest.

The R. W. Mann Trust

The Trust has a preference for supporting organisations in the North Tyneside, South East Northumberland and in the East Newcastle areas. In certain circumstances we may assist those operating in the wider Tyne, Wear, Durham and Northumberland areas if we consider that they offer exceptional added value to their communities or are particularly innovative. Support to national organisations will only be given where there is a specific project in the area in which we operate.

The Pluthero Foundation

The Pluthero Foundation offers financial assistance for a range of charitable activities primarily in the fields of health, and young people in the arts.
Priorities under 'Health' include:
• Transport for families and carers to visit hospital patients.
• Financial assistance for individuals with health problems, helping them and their families to access services or facilities.
• Supporting research into various illnesses.
• Achieving high standards of care for those with health problems.

Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust

The Charity's origins go directly back to Bishop Vesey, a native of Sutton Coldfield who persuaded Henry VIII to grant a Charter in 1528 establishing a Warden and Society (Corporation) to govern the town. In 1886, the town became a Borough and Sutton Coldfield Charities was set up, taking over the various Corporation Charities within one body. This operated alongside the Council.

Epping Forest - Grants for Sports, Arts, Leisure and Community Groups

The Grants for Sports, Arts, Leisure and Community Groups scheme is provided and administered by Epping Forest District Council. Under this programme, the Council offers the Major Grants and Three-year Revenue Grants.

Funding is intended to assist local voluntary and community groups and organisations that are providing services in line with the Council's objectives and targets.
