Deadlines for applications: 2016 - 2017

Important Message:

Our usual pattern of deadlines and decisions is different in 2017 as The Peter Minet Trust undertakes a review of its grant giving. In 2017 we have two Main Grants rounds, rather than three, and we will be running our Small Grants programme at specific times of the year only. We understand that this may be a disappointment to some charities.

Main Grants:

15 December 2016 for a Trustees’ meeting in February 2017
20 July 2017 for a Trustees’ meeting in October 2017

On each date, the deadline is midnight.

Small Grants:

You can apply for a Small Grant of £500 or under before 16 December 2016 or from 20 July 2017. We will aim to give you a decision within 4 weeks of receiving it.

We will not be receiving Small Grant applications between 16 December 2016 and 20 July 2017.
