The Edward Cadbury Charitable Trust


One-off grants available to registered charities for a variety of purposes including arts, culture and community projects. A preference for organisations based in the Midlands.

The Trust’s long-term interests in social welfare, music, nature, education and training combined with the Quaker values of simplicity, equality, justice, peace and care of the environment, underpin its grant making policy. 

Grants are made to registered charities, principally in the Midlands region,to support and develop the above areas of interest.

Partnerships funding


Grants are awarded for up to five years and we can fund project activities, operating costs, organisational development and capital costs.

We’re really interested in hearing your ideas. Whether they’re big or small, tell us what you think will improve your community.

Partnerships funding is specifically designed to support generous leadership and increased collaborative working, which starts with shared goals and values between different organisations and an understanding of the bigger picture.

Awards for All


National Lottery Awards for All offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.

National Lottery Awards for All has three funding priorities. Tell us in your application how you meet at least one of them.

Our priorities are:

Big Lottery Fund – Reaching Communities


Funding for ideas that make positive changes in communities e.g. lasting and sustainable changes to places and spaces, stronger and happier relationships between communities and action to focus on the root causes of social problems.

Voluntary or community groups can apply but need to have three unrelated members on the management committee. Grants must fund activity where the people who will benefit have influenced and/or be involved in its development, planning and delivery.

Clore Duffield Main Grants


Whilst the Foundation does occasionally make donations to the health and social care sectors, it should be noted that the majority of its support is directed towards the cultural sector, and in particular to cultural learning and to museum, gallery, heritage and performing arts learning spaces. Support for enhancing Jewish life has largely been directed towards JW3: London's Jewish Community Centre. The majority of expenditure is for capital projects – only a small number of grants are made each year for programme funding.
