The H.B Allen Charitable Trust is a grant making trust and also a registered charity.
They class themselves as a general charitable trust meaning the trustees have no restrictions on the type of project or area they can support.
Unusually for many grant making charities they also support core costs as well as capital projects and prefer to support more established organisations rather than newly formed ones.
They only support registered UK charities.
The trust is in the process of allocating its remaining funds with the view to winding up its activities by 2020, therefore their current dealing of 29 June 2018 my represent one of the last opportunities to apply for support.
They’re current priority funding area is defined as ‘environment/wildlife/animals’ and ‘museums/galleries/heritage’.
They ask that any potential applicants contact them to discuss their application before sending a written letter of application to their postal address.
