Welcome Background How to apply What are your chances? Grant conditions Contact us News and information



Before submitting an application, please read the following very carefully.
The Trust invites applications which meet its eligibility requirements. Make sure that your organization and project are eligible for funding and check whether your request matches our current funding priorities.

These will change from time to time. The Trust will only make awards which fall outside these guidelines in exceptional circumstances.

The Trustees will approve grants representing up to 20% of overall annual running costs. Grants can be made towards both revenue and capital costs.

The Trust expects that principal awards will be in the order of BZ$10,000 to BZ$250,000, with a minimum grant period of one year and a maximum of three years. The Trustees anticipate that the evaluation of applications for principal awards will take between 3 and 6 months before an applicant is notified of a decision. Adequate time should be allowed when making applications.

Subsidiary awards of up to BZ$10,000 are also available for smaller organisations. Applications should be made in the same way as for the principal grants program. However, if successful, your subsidiary grants may be awarded in as little as 2 to 3 months.

Applications can only be accepted from not-for-profit organizations.
