Rachel Charitable Trust

The Trust provides grants for charities who are providing social welfare activities, particularly the relief of poverty and the advancement of religion and religious education

The main areas of funding are:  Philanthropic aid to relieve the sick and the needy, Religious education; and The advancement of religion – so very broad!

The Trust accepts applications all year and no minimum or maximum grant sizes are given. As a guide; in 2014 the trust allocated just over £3 million in grants.


The Trust does not maintain a website, so further information is best sought from the Charity Commission website.

  1. Mr Chalk – we are a parish church in Higher Walton near Preston Lancashire . We have various repairs and restorations to undertake to this Victorian grade 2 listed building and we also have a programme to remodel the interior of the church with kitchen and toilet facilities to open the church more for community use.

    Are these the sort of activities you may consider for a grant?
