The Trust operates two grant making programmes. The small grants programme (under £4,000) supports state schools and small registered charities which would like to undertake projects which meet the Trust's objectives and require a small amount of pump-priming in order for such projects to take place. Meetings to consider applications for the small grants programme take place bi-monthly throughout the year. The full board of Trustees meets twice a year, in April and September, to consider grants in excess of £4,000. _________________________________________________________________________________________ The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund Opens for Applications (UK) The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund is currently inviting applications from charity organisations to support projects that support the rehabilitation of offenders and ex-offenders. The Trust would like to see applicants use these grants to develop sustainable income sources, so that when the grant comes to end the applicant organisation’s income will not be reduced. Grants are available for up to £40,000 or 50% of the organisation’s current annual income, whichever is lowest, per year for 3 years. The Trust would expect to see the amount requested each year tapering down as applicants develop other income streams to replace the grant income. The 50% of annual income limit is in place to discourage smaller organisations making an unrealistic
  3. 3. step change in income that cannot be sustained when the grant ends. The closing date for applications is the 7th November 2013.

Projects will be able to apply for a limited amount of funding for capital works, such as urgent repairs to prevent a building from further deteriorating, while they are being planned. The launch of the scheme coincided with the release of HLF research that found historic buildings are particularly successful in attracting creative industries and new business start- ups.
