Grant Decision Timetable

Applications can be submitted at any time, however please consider the following decision making timetable that the Charity will work to.

Grants up to £4,999

Applications up to £4,999 will be considered by the Head of UHCW Charity on a weekly basis.

Grants of £5,000 to £20,000

Applications between £5,000 and £20,000 will be considered by the Head of UHCW Charity and the Chairman of the Trustees on a  monthly basis. These requests may be taken to the next trustees meeting for a decision to be made.

Grants of more than £20,000

The trustees ask that you contact the Head of UHCW Charity as soon as you start to consider such a project valued at £20,000 or above if you think you will apply for a charity grant - this way they will be able to schedule their decision making with the timeline of your project.

Applications of more than £20,000 will be considered by the full trustee board at their quarterly meetings. You should be available to attend the meeting when your grant application is considered. This requirement will be confirmed by the Head of UHCW Charity at least one week before the meeting date.
