The principal objective of the Bridging Fund Charitable Trust is to assist those who the Trustees feel are in temporary difficulty and who could be helped to ‘get back on their feet’ with a little help.
To meet this objective the Charity makes grants to other charities that have an infrastructure in place to pass funds efficiently on to those individuals.
Community Interest Companies (CICs), registered charities and constituted voluntary organisations in the UK working with people in crisis are eligible to apply for one-off lump sum grants between £1,000 and £10,000.
The Trust prefers its grants to be used to directly assist individuals in crisis rather than to pay wages and/or the running costs of an organisation.
The Charity’s expenditure has averaged just under £250,000 per year over the last five years, although its most recently published accounts for the year ending 31 December 2014 show a charitable expenditure of £141,029.
Applications from individuals are not considered.
Applications may be submitted at any time in writing providing information on:
o What work the organisation does to help individuals in crisis,;
o Details of what the organisation wants a grant for; and
o The amount of grant support required.
The Charity’s trustees meet at least twice a year and are on record as saying they consider and vote on all requests for funding.
PLEASE NOTE: the Charity does not maintain a website. Further information is, however, available on the Charity Commission website.
