The Freshgate Trust Foundation

What We Do Not Fund

The Freshgate Trust will not normally consider applications from:

• Organisations that are not registered charities (except small community groups managed by volunteers with no paid employees).
• Charities with large reserves.
• National charities (unless for a capital project based in South Yorkshire with clear evidence of local management and local control of finances).
• Community Interest Companies and other ‘not for profit’ businesses (unless they are also registered charities).
• General appeal letters from charities.
• Individuals.
• Organisations supporting religious or political views.
• Animal welfare organisations.
• Applications for a project or event taking place before the date of the next funding meeting.
• Organisations applying primarily for salary costs.
• Projects that do not have sufficient funding to ensure running for at least one year from the date of the grant being applied for.
• New projects which need to fund salary costs, unless all salary costs for the project are secured for at least 18 months.
