The Steel Charitable Trust

Grants are made primarily to registered charities in the UK within the following funding areas:

Please note that the Trust does not fund individuals or expeditions.

The total level of grants is expected to be £1,000,000 per annum of which approximately 30% will be made to organisations in the Luton and Bedfordshire area. Grants are generally made as single payments between £2,500 and £25,000.

The Trust receives many more applications than it has funds to support. Prospective applicants should be aware that less than 12% of the applications received are successful. In many cases it may not be possible even to make grants for projects within the funding priorities.

The Trustees generally meet in February, May, August and November. At these meetings, having reviewed all applications received in the previous three months, the Trustees approve the grants to be made to the successful applicants. All successful applicants will be notified by email and will be required to provide written confirmation of the details of the project or work for which they are seeking a grant.

Application Form: Apply via the on-line application form.

Deadline: Applications can be submitted at any time.
