Funding is available for Christian organisations to significantly extend their reach to a greater number of people who will benefit from their work.
Allchurches Trust’s Transformational Grants Programme provides funding for major, multi-year capital projects and equipment. This year the Trust will also fund salaries and other revenue costs.
In addition to meeting the Trust’s core criteria for the award of a grant, applicants must demonstrate how their project will achieve as many as possible, and ideally all, of the following criteria:
- Significantly extend the organisation’s reach to a greater number of people and/or over a wider geographical area, and increase the scope of its work
- Make a vital difference in enabling the organisation to realise its overall vision and strategic aims
- Lead to a significant step-change or growth for the organisation – numerically and spiritually
- Benefit not only the immediate organisation but other similar organisations and/or the wider community as well
Churches, cathedrals, Christian denominational bodies, and Christian charities in the UK and the Republic of Ireland are eligible to apply and are encouraged to explore partnerships and shared learnings that will benefit the Christian sector. There is no maximum grant, but only a limited number of grants are awarded each year. Applications can be made at any time.
