How to apply
We have two application deadlines throughout the year, and no restrictions on reapplying. We encourage applicants to submit their forms ahead of the deadline.
We have a two stage application process:
1st Stage: complete the online application. We will acknowledge your application by email within five working days, so that you know it has reached us safely.
2nd Stage: once the Trustees have decided which applications are of interest to them (a shortlist is made the following week), you may be contacted to answer further questions. You will be notified three weeks after the deadline on whether your application is successful.
The Trust seeks to grant awards to charitable organisations, with an element of design in their projects, within London and the surrounding areas.
The Trust seeks to make grants of between £5,000 and £20,000. While matched funding is not essential, it is preferred. We will consider applications for multiyear funding.
Types of Support

The charity will not provide funding for any activities which are not charitable in accordance with the laws of England and Wales, any political or commercial appeals, or any religious causes.
The Trust accepts applications bi-annually. Please see the Timetable below for further information.
