The CLA Charitable Trust

Environmental

The CLA Charitable Trust provides grants of around £2,500 to organisations whose projects:

  • Promote education about the countryside for young people from towns and cities and those who are disadvantaged
  • Provide facilities for those who are disabled, who have learning difficulties or who are in some way disadvantaged to visit and participate in learning experiences about the countryside
  • Support the advancement of education in agriculture, horticulture and conservation for disadvantaged people, particularly the young.

The Trust no longer consider applications for sensory gardens or community allotments, or funding requests from state-funded schools or other institutions. Projects which are based on horticultural activities must be able to demonstrate that they provide training which leads to a recognised, accredited qualification for the participants.

Ordinarily, the Trustees will not give money towards core funding or make limited contributions to a much larger project. They prefer to fund specific capital purchases, or a discrete part of a project with which the Trust can be identified. The Trustees are unlikely to approve grants to charities or organisations with substantial financial resources, as they prefer to support smaller projects and organisations to which our limited funding will be crucial. We do not normally give a second grant to a recipient within a minimum of three years of the first or last award.

This fund has a continuous rolling application process with applications reviewed quarterly.
