Charities and other not-for-profit making organisations can apply as long as they are wholly based and working in the South West of England, particularly Devon and Cornwall. There is a preference for Exeter and/or East Devon. Applications from North Somerset, Bristol and Avon are very unlikely to be successful.
Preference is given to smaller local charities without national appeal and who have limited resources for fundraising.
The majority of grants awarded by the Trust are between £500 and £1,000, athough grants of up to £5,000 will be considered.
