The Robert Gavin Charitable Trust gives financial support, for the public benefit, to a range of charitable causes. Principal fields of interest include the arts, education, social policy and research and charities for the disabled.
The Trustees prefer to make grants to organisations whose work they personally know and admire. This does not, however, mean that charities unknown to the Trustees personally do not receive grants. A number of grants are made to new organisations during each financial year. These include small charities working in areas which cannot easily raise funds and which are without the resources themselves for professional fundraising.
There are no guidelines as to the amount you can apply for.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. The Trustees meet formally approximately four times throughout the year.
