organisationsGrants for Organisations

Grant making policies for organisations that provide “relevant” services calculated to address and/or reduce the financial or educational needs of individuals.

In 2016 due to impending financial constraints, the trustees resolved not to consider applications from “new” organisations i.e. not currently, or very recently in receipt of a grant from the Charity. They believe the Charity already targets the main areas of poverty in the City through individual grants or by helping the organisations already in receipt of assistance.

The trustees also considered carefully the amount of historical educational “endowment” available, and resolved to limit individual and organisational grants to promote education to about 12% of the total nett income available. (This is enshrined in the CIO constitution)

They confirmed their unwillingness to help organisations that provide health related care, mainly because such charities provide indiscriminate help to all-comers, regardless of their financial circumstances or financial needs.

The Charity currently provides major financial assistance to the large organisations listed (right).

The trustees consider their discretionary assistance collectively, to such organisations, so that they should not reach the point where the help available to individuals in need is compromised as a direct result.
