Thompson Family Charitable Trust

The Thompson Family Charitable Trust provides grants to registered charities for general charitable purposes across the UK, although the Trust's record of grant distribution appears to show some preference for charities in the London area. 
Previous grants have been given in the following areas:
• Health and social welfare.
• Animal welfare.
• The Arts.
• Sport.
• Education.
• Medical Research.
The Trust provides a range of grants from £250 up to an exceptional amount of £500,000. Most grants, however, tend to be between £1,000 and £50,000 with a few grants of £100,000 and £200,000. Repeat awards are not uncommon
Grants totalling £3.5 million were made during the financial year ending 31 January 2014, an increase of £0.4 million on the previous year, bringing aggregate grants made by the Trust to £16.8 million since it was founded in 1985.
The Trust currently has around £105 million in unrestricted income for its charitable activities, so is unlikely to run out of funds soon.
Examples of previously funded organisations include:
• Action on Addiction (£100,000)
• Animal Health Trust (£500)
• Chicken Shed Theatre Trust (£50,000)
• Healing Foundation (£5.000)
• Place2be (£50,000)
• Scene and Heard (£50,000)
• Walking with the Wounded (£500)
The Trust does not have a website or a formal application form.
Applications should be made in writing to the Trust.
