Grants for Welfare and Art Projects (South West of England)
Grants are available to not for profit organisations and schools in the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset in the South West of England through the Elmgrant Trust for welfare, education, social science and art projects which help to improve the quality of local life. Grants can cover the core running costs or project costs of small established organisations who have a proven record of making a significant difference.
The Elmgrant Trust also provides grants to individuals who are further educating themselves to improve their job prospects with a clear compassionate need.
Previous projects supported include the Dartington Hall Trust which received a grant to support a bursary scheme that enables young musicians to take part in their Summer School.
The board of trustees meets three times a year, usually on the last Saturday of February, June and October. Applications need to be submitted one clear month prior to the meeting date.
