G C Gibson Charitable Trust

West Country based the GC Gibson Charitable Trust was established in 1968 by George Gibson by a grant of shares in his shipping business, based in Cardiff, called Atlantic Shipping.
The fund today is worth £12 million and invests in quoted equities aiming to grow its capital and yet provide a income which is paid out annually in small grants to around 200 charities.
The GC Gibson Charity offers grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 to a wide range of small and medium sized charities operating in the UK.
Funding is often provided for many years and the trustees put no restrictions on expenditure.
During the financial year ending 31 March 2014 the Trust allocated £566,844, a slight decrease on the previous year’s allocation of £619,600.
Priority is given to charities that the trustees have previously worked with.
However, a number of charities are added to the Trust’s grant funding portfolio each year. For these new applications, The Trust focuses on a particular theme and this changes from year to year.
The Trust’s current theme is:
o Supporting innovative education or training projects that benefit disadvantaged young people.
Applications are accepted from:
o Charities that are UK registered (although they can operate anywhere in the world);
o Smaller charities where the impact of the Trust’s funding has a greater impact and is less likely to become lost.
Applications for 2015 will be accepted from Saturday 1st August and must be made via the Trust’s online application form.
