- advance the education of the public regarding the first Lord Beaverbrook

Grants are typically under £5,000 and can be made for capital expenditure, i.e. to acquire or upgrade physical assets such as buildings, fixtures and fittings, machinery, furniture and other equipment; for revenue/running costs; and for special projects. The Trustees will not normally consider grants to cover expenditure which has already been incurred or committed.
The Trustees promote the concept of match funding, and may make a payment conditional upon the applicant obtaining the remaining funding from other sources.
