Craven Trust deadlines in 2019

22 October 2018

The Craven Trust awards grants of £100 to £1,500 to local voluntary and community groups for projects that improve the quality of life of local people living within the Craven Trust area. This includes parts of Bradford district (Haworth, Keighley, Oakworth, Cullingworth, Wilsden and Denholme). A detailed map of the eligible area is available.

Voluntary and community organisations can apply. The funder prefers to fund registered charities but charitable status is not essential.

What can be funded?

Examples include:

  • "Items such as equipment and capital purchases to improve the organisation’s services, administration or functions etc.
  • Training for volunteers or trustees.
  • Premises costs (e.g. for building maintenance and repairs).
  • Set-up costs (e.g. for a new project: materials and equipment)."

Not eligible for funding

"The trustees will not make grants to animal charities, students or for foreign travel, or national or medical charities (with some exceptions). Generally the trustees do not fund running costs such as salaries."


Please read the guidelines before completing the application form.
