The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust’s Grant Program is now open to charities and non-profit community organisations that support development of education, community projects, health and well-being, arts, culture and sport, principally for people living in east Kent, and in particular the District of Folkestone and Hythe.
By focusing on a defined geographical area, and on projects that fit within well-defined criteria, the Trust aims to make a substantial impact on the community where it is based.
What They Support?
- Arts, culture and heritage;
- Community development and regeneration;
- Amateur sport;
- Projects to support young people;

- The Trust will not consider applications for projects: that promote political or religious beliefs or causes; from or on behalf of animal welfare charities; from national charities, unless there is a significant benefit to a local (Kent) office or project;
- The Trust does not normally provide grants for projects outside the UK;
- Repeat applications from a single organisation within a twelve month period will not normally be considered;
- For capital projects applicants are asked to submit evidence that at least three competitive quotes have been obtained for the work that is proposed.
