Shears Foundation (Grant – North East)

The Foundation welcomes applications from charities working in one of the following priority areas:

  • The development of culture and the arts.
  • The development and provision of educational opportunities for adults or children.
  • Protection, preservation or enhancement of the natural environment.
  • Creating stronger / better / more sustainable communities.
  • Promoting health and medicine, with an emphasis on research or education.

The Trustees look more favourably on applications where there is evidence that the organisation has gone out to a wide range of funders. Those who haven’t had a grant from the Shears Foundation before are more likely to be successful if they apply for less than £15,000.

Tyne & Wear and Northumberland will be given priority.

No minimum or maximum specified. Registered charities only.

Next deadline: 24 March
