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 is due to take place in March 2018 on a date yet to be confirmed.  The Trustees hope to be in a position to begin accepting new applications towards the end of December 2017.  Further details will be provided when they are available.

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.
