The Trustees of The Mrs Smith & Mount Trust seek to achieve their aims by making grants to charities working in the fields they wish to target.
Grants are made in three main areas:
This is the main funding programme. Applications under this heading are considered three times a year in March, July and November under the following priority areas:
- Mental Health
- Learning Disability
- Health in the Community. This category is for registered charities with an annual income of less than £500,000, working to improve health in the community.
The next meeting of the Trustees is due to take place on the 7th November 2017. The Trustees will begin accepting applications for this meeting from the 7th August.
The Mrs Smith Fund is distributed by way of block grants to registered charities working with individuals the Trustees aim to assist. The grants are then distributed by the recipients in the form of small hardship grants to individuals in need in accordance with the criteria of the Mrs Smith Fund.
This fund has arisen due to the receipt of a legacy. Grants are made in line with both the Trust's mission statement and the lifetime interests of the donor. Applications to this fund are by invitation only.
