General Criteria

Applicants must be registered charities operating in Greater Manchester.  The Trustees will chiefly support local, smaller, Greater Manchester registered charities.  

Community Interest Companies and Industrial & Provident Societies that are not registered charities are ineligible for grant funding.  

Payments are not made to individuals nor are loans normally given.  

Grants are not normally made for new building work but payments for fitting out of specialist premises may be made.  Long-term commitments are not usually made but an indication that a grant may be paid, subject to conditions and annual review, for up to three years may be given.
