Albert Hunt Trust

The Albert Hunt Trust’s mission statement is to:
“"Promote and enhance the physical and mental welfare of individuals, or groups of individuals, excluding research or the diagnosis and treatment of specific medical conditions, by the distribution of trust funds, at the sole and absolute discretion of the trustees, to charities registered in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, that are actively engaged in that field of work (revised March 2014)."
Previous grants have ranged from £1,000 to £30,000.
However, most grants are for between £1,000 and £3,000.
During the year ending 5 April 2014 the Trust made grant commitments totalling £2,134,750 (2013 - £2,077,470) to approximately 1,100 organisations including many CAB’s, Age UK’s, Mencap’s and Home-Start’s, along with a very broad range of other charitable agencies.
A full list of all awards made during the 2013/14 financial year can be viewed on the Trust’s audited accounts for the year at the Charity Commission website (see link below).
The Trustees' grant making policy is to react to appeals received and these are considered by the trustees on a monthly basis.
Charitable organisations are asked to submit appeals to the Trustees in writing containing the following:
• Aims and objectives of the charity
• Nature of appeal
• Total target if for a specific project
• Contributions received against target
• Registered charity number, and
• Any other relevant factors.
Funding is not available for:
• Overseas projects, or
• Research.
Applications may be submitted at any time.
PLEASE NOTE: the Trust does not maintain a website. Further information is, however, available on the Charity Commission website.
