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
  4. Health in the Community

See the How to Apply to the Mount Fund page for the specific criteria for each of these categories.

The next meeting of the Trustees will take place on the 5th March 2019.
Due to the number of applications already received this meeting is now closed.


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.
