Preservation and Social Welfare Grants from Pilgrim Trust25-Apr-2017
The Pilgrim Trust are continuing their call for applications from UK groups and organisations whose work involves social welfare and preservation.
Established over 80 years ago, The Pilgrim Trust provides grants each year to charities and other public bodies.
More than half of the grants go toward UK Heritage; projects which look to preserve architecturally or historically important buildings, or projects working to preserve historically significant artifacts or documents. The main emphasis is on projects that conserve historical buildings, monuments and collections.
The rest of the funding goes toward Social Welfare needs, where they focus their support on projects helping women and girls. They take a special interest in early intervention which addresses the concerns before it develops and grows, and the grants are for projects that have a positive impact on the lives of women and girls facing severe and multiple disadvantage, particularly where their vulnerabilities put them at risk of offending.
Funding is available through two programmes:
Main Grant Fund
Grants above £5,000 are available
Small Grant Fund
For requests of £5,000 or less
Grants can be used for project costs; revenue costs, which includes staff salaries; costs related to initial fact-finding work for organisations seeking to recover important buildings and monuments, and capital costs.
Because the scheme is a continuous rolling programme, there is no deadline and so applications can be accepted at any time.
