Large Grants are made by the Trust in a fixed seven-year cycle.
In only two years of that cycle are grants made in response to applications from external charities, and then only to charities for wildlife and environmental causes.
When Large Grants are made for wildlife and environmental causes they are typically in the £5,000 to £50,000 range.
The most recent open years for wildlife and environment grants were 2016 and 2017. The next time applications for Large Grants for wildlife and the environment will be accepted are from January 2023 through to December 2024.
Please note that we will not be looking at any applications for Large Grants until January 2023.
