Dollond Charitable Trust

The Dollond Charitable Trust makes grants primarily to registered charities. Its Charity Commission entry states:
“The charity operates a broad based grant making policy. However, activities are often focused on health, education and religious activities”.
Although in theory the Trust’s grant making policy is broadly based, the trustees have adopted a policy of prioritising assistance to Jewish communities in the UK and Israel.
The Trust therefore particularly encourages applications from charities that are focused on providing services for Jewish people.
In the last recorded financial year ending 31 March 2014 the Trust made 157 grants totalling £1,896,850, an increase of £235,605 on the previous year. The average award was slightly over £12,000(2013: £11,300) with grants often awarded for organisational running costs.
Grants were made under the following general headings:
Education and Training (23 awards totalling £509,800. Average grant: £22,165);
Religious education (43 awards totalling £420,000. Average award £18,260);
Relief of poverty (44 awards totalling £359,500. Average award £8,170);
Disability (15 awards totalling £390,800. Average award £26,053);
Medical, health and sickness (24 awards totalling £173,750. Average award £7,239); and
Religious activities (8 awards totalling £43,000. Average award £5,375).
The application process is ongoing and interested applicants may apply at any time.
