Sir James Knott Trust supports charitable activity in Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Hartlepool.
The Trust is an excellent local funder that makes monthly decisions on applications of up to £1,000 and larger grants three times per year.
The Trustees have wide discretion on the distribution of funds. They do not fund research or activity that has already taken place. They do fund faith-based organisations as long as the activity is open to those of all faiths and none.
Deadline: The Trust operates on a rolling grants programme. If you miss a deadline, your application will be considered at the following meeting. The next deadline is 28 February 2024.
Small grants (£1,000 and under) are processed outside of scheduled meetings with an average turnaround of 6 weeks.
