  • Small grants, £100-£5,000 (around 100 grants made per year).
  • Large grants, over£5,000 (around 5 grants are made per year). Large grants are only given to charities known to the Trustees.
  • The Trustees favour small-scale, locally based initiatives. Funding is primarily for one-off projects, but the Trustees are also willing to fund core costs. Most grants are only for 1 year.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Trust primarily funds charitable organisations in the UK.
  • If Woodward funds overseas projects it is usually via UK charities which can ensure that funds are being well used. Woodward favours charities which make good use of volunteers and encourage past and current users to participate. Their grant-making continues to be primarily reactive but with some selected projects initiated by the trustees.
