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:


The Mount Fund

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:

  1. Mental Health

  2. Learning Disability
  3. Homelessness
    The Trustees will be piloting a new grant making procedure for this category at their meeting due to take place in March 2018.  Please go to How to Apply for more details.

The next meeting of the Trustees will take place on the 28th March 2018. 

This meeting is now closed.  The Trustees are not accepting any further applications for this meeting.  For more details on how and when to apply please see How to Apply

The Mrs Smith Fund

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.

The Spanoghe Grants Programme

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.
