The Brelms Trust is a small Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), originally
set up as a Charitable Trust in 2007, offering grants to a wide variety of charities
and community projects. Funding is given exclusively to charities based in Yorkshire
and directly benefitting only Yorkshire communities.
Priority in our grant giving is given to charities working at the heart of communities
to tackle disadvantage and to provide sustainable benefit to the community. Applications
are welcomed from a diversity of organisations and can cover staff salaries, volunteer
expenses and running costs, as well as direct service provision.
Our grants range from £1,000 to £5,000 per year, either as a one-off grant or up
to a maximum of 3 consecutive years. In exceptional circumstances the Trustees may
award a single grant of £7,000.
The Trustees meet quarterly, usually in March, June, September and December, to make
grant awards. See our news bulletin for forthcoming deadlines for applications.
The Trust does not generally support the total cost of a project, and applicants
should demonstrate that wider funding plans are in place.
