The Allan & Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust primarily funds projects which support the Trust’s interests of education, international friendship and understanding, and the promotion of world peace and development.
The Trust aims to support projects both in the UK and abroad, and supports charitable organisations situated in the UK and overseas. However, all charitable organisations must be registered as a charity with the UK Charity Commission in order to be eligible for funding.
Grants to charities will be on a matching funding basis only so that if the applicant has raised 50% of their budget the Trustees will consider awarding matching funding up to a maximum of 50%. However, if the applicant has raised less than 50% of their budget the Trustees will only consider awarding a maximum of 30% funding.
Applications can be submitted at any time as the Trustees review applications for funding requests up to £50,000 on a monthly basis. If you wish to apply for funding of more than £50,000 then your application will be considered at the next bi-annual meeting of Trustees which usually take place around March and September.
