Grant holders in Israel - conditions and claims

Grant holders in Israel - conditions and claims


All awards made to organisations in Israel are administered by the Trust's office in the UK.


Successful applicants will receive a letter outlining the award and any associated conditions, which should be read carefully. Grants awarded are also subject to the conditions set out here.

It is important that we receive written confirmation of acceptance of a grant and the conditions attached to the award.

Grants must normally be claimed within a year of the award, unless we have agreed otherwise. In the meantime, we would appreciate being kept up to date on the progress of your project via an annual report. We will advise the deadline for receipt when we write to offer you a grant.

How to claim

Grants can be claimed (in arrears) once the element of the project that we are funding has been carried out, even if the main project is still ongoing.

We make grant payments at the end of every month, except in August, when no payments are made. If you send us your claim documents by the 15th of the month, we shall try to release your grant in the same month. Please note that payment is never guaranteed for a particular month and after your documents have been checked by our office, they need to be approved by our auditors and Trustees before the grant can be released.

To claim your grant, please send us the following:

  • Paid invoices or architect's certificates that equal or exceed the value of the grant, excluding ineligible costs (see important notes below). These should refer to work carried out or equipment ordered after the date of the award.
  • A covering letter indicating how the invoices relate to your original application and confirming that they have been paid.
  • A photocopy of a paying in slip or other bank document showing details of a UK bank account into which the grant is to be paid, which should include all of the following: account name, account number, sort code, and bank name and address. Payment will normally be made to a UK registered or statutory charity (or equivalent).
  • The name, telephone number and email address of the person we should contact if we have a query about your claim.
Important notes
  • Unless otherwise stated, grants will be paid in one instalment and must be claimed within one year of the award.
  • Overheads, administrative costs, VAT, professional fees, installation and delivery costs cannot be met from a Wolfson grant.
  • If the total expenditure is less than the value of the grant, only the actual expenditure will be paid. Please state in your covering letter that you wish to relinquish the remaining amount of the grant.
  • Where invoices are not in English they should be certified by an independent auditor in English.
