  1. THE DUDLEY AND GEOFFREY COX CHARITABLE TRUST

 Deadline: August 2018

The Trust only funds registered charities delivering projects in the following categories:

  • Category 1 – medical research projects; or
  • Category 2 –  things of benefit to young people; or
  • Category 3 – ‘welfare’ in the sense of improving the well-being, living conditions, comfort or general flourishing of particular groups of people who are burdened in some way. In principle this category is very broad, but obvious examples would be homelessness, being in prison, isolated elderly people, people in financial hardship, etc; or

In Category 1 (medical research), the Trust rarely makes grants exceeding £5,000. In Categories 2 (Youth) and 3 (Welfare), grants are often in the range £5,000 – £20,000 in a single year.

The Trust’s strongest preference as to geography is for work which mainly or exclusively benefits London boroughs with a postcode starting with W, SW, or NW. Preference is also to fund charities with an annual income of less than £100,000.

Charities should apply during February  – August. Applications will be shortlisted during September and decided by Trustees during October or early November. Decisions are notified on 15 November.
