Community Foundation: The 1989 Willan Charitable Trust




The 1989 Willan Charitable Trust will fund charitable activities benefiting residents of Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Teesside.

Priority will be given to those which:

  • ease social deprivation and/or
  • enrich the fabric of the local community and the quality of life of individuals within that community

Grants are available to support organisations’ core costs, as well as discreet projects, and will generally range from £500 to £10,000. Please see the website for examples of projects that will be funded.

The Trustees wish to prioritise projects for which Willan funding will represent a significant contribution to delivery of the project. They are also more likely to fund North East charities with expenditure of less than £1 million.

Grant size: £500 to £10,000

Application process: Community Foundation website

There are no deadlines – this is a rolling programme.
