Charities can apply for a grant at any time. The Trustees meet twice a year, with deadlines for applications on 1st May and 1st October. Urgent applications may be considered separately: please highlight and explain the need for urgency in your covering letter.
Applications should be made in writing or by email.
Please explain concisely the reasons for your request and the expected outcomes.
For national charities care should be taken, wherever possible, to explain how your work will specifically benefit the people of Merseyside and the surrounding region.
Where possible, please ask for a specific sum, rather than simply asking for “a contribution”
Please enclose with your application any details relating to budgets or costs and, where relevant, details of any funding already received from other sources.
To ensure efficient payment of funds, in the event of an application being successful, please include with your application: bank name; account name; account number; sort code.
