HDH Wills 1965 Charitable Trust

The HDH Wills 1965 Charitable Trust awards grants from two separate funds: the General Fund and the Martin Wills Fund.
The General Fund is used to make grants for general charitable purposes, while the Martin Wills Fund operates on a seven year funding priority cycle.
In the current seven year cycle the Fund’s priority is wildlife conservation.
Grant awards are normally one-off and mainly made in the UK, although occasionally grants are provided for overseas projects.
Grants can be awarded for revenue, capital or project costs.
Awards from the General Fund can be for up to £5,000 but are more typically between £100 and £1,000.
Awards from the Martin Wills Fund are usually between £2,000 and £25,000.
During the year ending 31 March 2015 the Trust awarded grants totalling £945,727(2014: £949.218). 90% of all awards (£848,772) were made through the Martin Wills Fund. 
The following are not funded:
o Individuals;
o Charities that have received a grant during the previous 18 months; or
o Organisations that are not registered or recognised charities.
Only one application from a charity is considered during any single 18 month period.
While applications to the General Fund may be made at any time, grants from the Martin Wills Fund are distributed after the end of each financial year (i.e. 31 March annually). Applications must therefore be received by the Trust before 31 March each year.
Application is via an on online application form available from theTrust’s website.
