others to bring about real and concrete results that can be seen and felt on

types considered.

The Four Acre Trust Unknown Unknown no We believe that people most
value things they have worked for. To this end, we like to see recipients
making some form of contribution towards the project, even if it is not in
the form of cash.
We prefer to support projects that help to prevent rather
than cure problems.
We like charities that work locally, make good use of volunteers and can
stand up for themselves when challenged about their work.
We like to ‘back the person’ – some of our most effective grants have been
attached to the continuing employment of an individual who has impressed us.
Much funding is salaries and associated core costs.
We acknowledge that times are changing and dislike the shifting of
government responsibilities onto charities.
We seldom support capital
projects as that is an area where funding appears to be easier to find.
We don’t need to see our name on every project.
We dislike the fact that charities are treated differently from commercial
companies.
We believe that charities need to improve their
professionalism, and to continually try to move to a sustainable
position.
We hope that social enterprises will multiply and provide services at a
local level.
