The Joron Charitable Trust

The Joron Charitable Trust aims to support registered charities undertaking charitable projects. In particular, the Trust wishes to support projects in the fields of:
o Education; and
o Medical research.
Other charities that can demonstrate a grant can be used effectively are also supported.
Previous grants have been for between £1,000 and £230,000. Match funding is not required. The Trust makes very few grant awards each year so this is a highly competitive application process.
During the year ending 31 March 2015 the Trust awarded 9 grants and donations (2014: 7) totalling £308,477 (2014: £218,613). The average grant was approximately £10,000, excluding a single award of £230,000 last year (see below).
Previous grant awards have included:
The Wilderness Foundation - for the protection of wilderness areas by teaching people about benefits (£230,000);
The Carers Trust - to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who ill, frail, disabled or has mental health (£25,000);
Nightingale Hammerson - the provision of residential, nursing, dementia &respite care (£15,000); and
Dance Ability - Providing dance classes, recreational and public performances for those with learning difficulties to improve social and communication skills (£10,000).
Applying organisations must be a UK registered charity.
Individuals are not eligible to apply.
PLEASE NOTE: the Trust does not maintain a website. Further information is, however, available on the Charity Commission website.
There is no formal application procedure. Applications should be made in writing to:
