Grants in the UK
Grants in the UK
The Wolfson Family Charitable Trust funds mainly in Israel, however a small number of awards are made each year to British organisations serving the UK Jewish community. We are interested in supporting projects that help people with special needs (particularly physical and learning disabilities), provide high quality secondary education, or that improve access to important culture or heritage.
- Funding is provided for capital projects only (i.e. buildings, refurbishment or specialist equipment).
We run a two stage process. See here for guidance on what information should be included in a Stage 1 application, and to submit an application online. The deadline for Stage 1 applications is 1 June 2016.
Guidance on what a Stage 2 application should contain is generally the same as for the Wolfson Foundation, and may be downloaded here. The deadline for Stage 2 applications is 15 July 2016.
Stage 2 applications are sent out to expert reviewers, before being considered by our Trustees. The Trustees generally meet once each year.
Note that applications should not be submitted to both the Wolfson Foundation and the Wolfson Family Charitable Trust at the same time.
These are generally similar to those of the Wolfson Foundation, and ineligible projects would include:
- Grants direct to individuals or through conduit organisations
- Overheads, maintenance costs, VAT and professional fees
- Non-specific appeals (including circulars) and endowment funds
- Costs of meetings, exhibitions, concerts, expeditions, etc.
- The purchase of land or existing buildings (including a building's freehold)
- Film or promotional materials
- Repayment of loans
- Projects that have already been completed or will be by the time of award
