Funding for Projects that Tackle the Root Causes of Social Inequity – 14th September 2018 (UK)

The next closing date for grant application to the Scurrah Wainright Charity is the 14th September 2018.

The Charity supports a wide range of charitable projects in the with an emphasis on social reform and tackling the root causes of social inequity. The charity favours causes that are outside the mainstream, and unlikely to be funded by other charities. Typically, grants are between £1,000 and £5,000.

The charity runs three funding programmes:

  • Yorkshire. Trustees give priority to applicants working in the Yorkshire region. Your organisation need not be based in the region but the project itself must directly benefit the Yorkshire community. We fund national charitable organisations ONLY if the project is specifically working in the Yorkshire region, with clear evidence of local control and access to the grant.
  • Southern Africa, particularly Zimbabwe.
  • Projects that have applied to the Andrew Wainwright Reform Trust because they meet the AWRT’s broad objectives to work for a just and democratic society and to redress political and social injustices but have not been able to proceed with an application to that Trust because they are eligible for charitable funding.

Previous organisations supported include:

  • The Boaz Trust a Christian organisation serving destitute asylum seekers in Greater Manchester which received a grant of £2,000.
  • The Grandparents Association in Leeds which received a grant of £4,800.

Organisations applying, do not have to be a charity, but its work must satisfy the Charity Commission’s definition of charitable purposes and public benefit.
