Funding: The Tudor Trust – grants for smaller charities and groups

The Tudor Trust is an independent grant-making charitable trust. We fund a wide range of organisations working to support positive changes in people’s lives and in their communities around the UK. We don’t have specific funding programmes designed to advance any particular agenda as we think that the groups we support are best placed to identify problems and develop solutions.

Supporting positive change in communities
Tudor supports work which tries to meet the many different needs of people at the margins of our society in a wide variety of ways. We are interested in how organisations tackle these needs, and their root causes. We are keen to work with organisations that have a real understanding of the challenges facing the communities they support, and a clear sense of the difference they seek to make through their work.

We are interested in how organisations work, as well as in what they do, and look for a number of key characteristics and qualities in the groups we support. There are some types of organisation and work which we will not consider for funding.

As we receive more applications than we can fund we have a straightforward two-stage application process designed to reduce the time, effort and resources organisations spend on their first approach to us.
