The Beatrice Laing Trust

Funding is for the advancement of the evangelical Christian faith, at home and abroad; specifically the relief of poverty. The Trustees’ priority areas of giving are

To support new church building, extension or redevelopment projects, with a particular emphasis on churches using their physical resources to communicate Christian faith and respond to needs in their local community,

To support organisations offering practical services to those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable, with a particular emphasis on Christian organisations seeking to express their faith through practical action to help:

  • the homeless
  • the elderly
  • ex-offenders
  • former Servicemen and women

To support organisations providing practical services to people with physical, mental and learning difficulties, predominately through:

  • special schools seeking to make provision for those with increasingly complex needs
  • support in the transition from childhood to adulthood and in accessing training and/or meaningful employment opportunities

To support small-scale overseas development projects aimed at building the capacity of local partners to provide long-term solutions to problems in the developing world, principally through Christian organisations working in the Anglophone countries of Sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia to:

  • improve educational opportunities
  • build sustainable livelihoods

Grants typically range between £2,000 and £10,000, but the trustees have the capacity to make a number of larger grants each year
