NEWS: The Dulverton Trust is delighted to announce that the Four Acre Trust will make a donation of 400,000 to enable additional grants to be made under Dulverton’s Youth Opportunities and General Welfare categories during the 2017/18 financial year. We are most grateful to the Four Acre Trust for this generous gift which will significantly increase the support we are able to offer to charities working with children and young people and addressing a wide variety of social needs. The application process remains unchanged. Charities wishing to apply for a grant under our Youth Opportunities or General Welfare categories should check our guidelines.

The Dulverton Trust is an independent grant-making charity and company limited by guarantee. We award grants directly to UK registered charities including those registered as a company limited by guarantee and CIOs (charitable incorporated organisations, more information). We do not provide support for individuals.

Single year grants are normally in the range of 25,000 to 35,000 and Trustees prefer to support medium sized charities (with an income of 200,000 to 5 million) where our grant can make a difference. We will also consider applications from newly registered charities. Dulverton grants to local UK charities with an income below 200,000 (Minor Grants) are administered on our behalf by Community Foundations (more information). Please note that multi-year grants are not normally awarded to charities unless they have previously received a major grant from the Trust.

The Trust currently supports a wide range of activities in the following categories:




Youth Opportunities
  General Welfare
   Conservation      Preservation 

We also provide a small number of grants to UK registered charities working in the areas of Peace and Humanitarian Support and East Africa (usually Kenya and Uganda).

You are welcome to apply to us for a grant if you represent a charity working on one of our priority areas and you have checked our guidelines and none of our exclusions apply to your charity or project.

Trustees regularly review our grant-making policy and any changes will be posted on this website.
