DM Thomas Foundation: Seeking Applications for Central Grants Programme

Deadline: 7 May 2019

The DM Thomas Foundation for Young People (formerly known as Hilton in the Community Foundation) is seeking applications for its “Central Grants Programme” with an aim to identify the most effective projects helping disadvantaged young people in the UK and Ireland.

Focus Areas

  • Improving the education of young people
  • Improving the health of young people

Target Groups

  • Children and young people with disabilities
  • Children and young people who are sick in hospital
  • Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care)

Funding Information

  • Grant applications for up to £5,000 can be approved by the Director, up to £10,000 can be approved by the Grants Committee, and applications for more than £10,000 are recommended to the Trustees for final approval.
  • The Foundation is a small charity and generally will not make awards of over £30,000 (per year).
  • Funding can be requested for up to 2 years for any particular project.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Central grants can only be awarded to charities registered in England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
  • Charity must be registered for a period of at least 12 months before the Foundation can consider awarding funding.
  • Charities with overdue reporting (e.g. annual return) to these monitoring bodies will not be considered.
  • Central grants are aimed at supporting smaller charities and therefore the Foundation will typically not consider large charities showing normal charitable expenditure of more than £2 million (except for children’s hospices, which fall under one of DMTFYP‘s core themes).
  • Charities larger than this may still apply, but please note preference may be given to applications from smaller charities.

How to Apply

Applications should be sent via email at the address given on the website.

Eligible Countries: United Kingdom and Ireland
