The trustees wish to promote their work as widely as possible to ensure that all community groups, large or small are able to apply, however grants are NOT given to:

  • Animal charities
  • Students
  • Foreign travel
  • National charities, medical charities and other grant making organisations are generally not eligible, although grants may be made on an exceptional basis if it can be proved that the benefits are for an organisation or person in Craven Trust’s area of benefit.
