Our funding priorities
We like to make grants which will make a difference, preference will be given to charities or projects which are having difficulty getting started, or raising funds from other sources. This often means that the Trust is funding capital projects, eg for equipment or materials, rather than running costs. Grants are made to charities in all parts of the world.
The Jephcott Charitable Trust is prepared to consider support for schemes, particularly educational ones, which help to control excessive growth in population.
The Natural Environment
The Trust has supported a number of projects involved in conserving the natural environment. It does not support projects involving animal welfare or heritage sites or buildings.
Projects will be considered include benefitting people of all ages and backgrounds. They may be able to provide formal education, to teach vocational skills to enhance the possibility of employment, to enhance computer skills, health awareness, distance learning.
A very wide range of healthcare projects are supported. Projects which require long-term funding are not normally considered. The Trust prefers to make one-off donations to get many projects started, rather than support fewer projects charities over a long period.
