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 two main areas, The Mount Fund and The Mrs Smith Fund:
The criteria of the Mount Fund has changed.
Applications made after 1st April 2023 will be assessed based on the new criteria. No further applications will be accepted under the old criteria.
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:
- Therapeutic Interventions in Mental Health
- Community Youth Services
- Refugee and Asylum Seekers
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 is due to take place on 14th March 2024. Applications for this meeting will open on 18th January 2024.
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 to the recipients in the form of small hardship grants to individuals in need in accordance with the criteria of the Mrs Smith Fund. The Trustees are currently not accepting any new applications for this fund.
