The GC Gibson Charitable Trust is Open for Applications - Deadline 20th August

Posted on Tuesday 13 August 2019
Applications this year will be for around 10 grants of up to £4,000 each. No grant will be larger than £4,000.

Focus for 2019

“We wish to support capital equipment purchases or building refurbishment which provide benefit to the aged or the disadvantaged young or to the disabled, mainly in the UK but we will look at charities operating overseas. We wish to encourage projects that increase engagement for the benefit of both individuals and society. Ideally, we can be used for matched funding to unlock further funds. Last year we had 321 applications by the end of August when we closed and gave 12 grants. We only will give to smaller charities, those with annual charitable donations of less than £1 million, (although total income may be higher) and we only want a maximum of one-page applications. Please keep it simple and enjoy doing it. In simple terms it is likely that short applications do better. If we want more information, we will contact you. You will be informed in October of our decisions.” 

General Criteria

  • Charities must be UK registered but can operate anywhere in the world.
  • Prefer smaller charities where the impact of our money will not get lost and will influence the lives of many- maximum annual charitable donations should be £1 million.
  • Online applications only 




Please Note: applications for this Trust are only accepted in August of each year; information is published on the website on the 1st of August (it was slightly later this year – apologies for the delay).
