NFU Mutual Charitable Trust Funding Available to Support UK Rural Communities
The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust is now accepting applications to support youth projects in rural communities of the UK.
The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust provides grants for projects that strengthen rural areas of the UK, particularly those that educate young people and relieve poverty. Across two rounds, the Trust will focus on providing funding to larger initiatives, which would have a significant impact on the rural community. Although there are no set funding levels, grants tend to range from £1,000 to £30,000.
Charitable organisations based and working within the UK seeking funding for charitable initiatives in the areas of education, research, social welfare and poverty relief can apply to the Fund. It is not necessary to be a registered charity to apply.
Previous grant recipients include the following:
- Care Farming UK
- Children’s Country Holiday Fund
- Farms for City Children
- Henry Plumb Foundation
- Myton Hospice
- National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs
Applications must be made in writing.
The 2017 deadlines for applications are 25 May 2018 and 26 October 2018.
