The Archer Trust

 The Archer Trust is a UK Christian charitable grant-making trust, set up in 1994 in memory of Ronnie Archer, who rose through the ranks of Unilever to become Vice-Chairman. It is hoped that the Archer Trust will be a fitting memorial to a talented but modest man.

Any correspondence should be addressed to the Secretary, The Archer Trust, Bourne House, Wadesmill, Ware, Herts, SG12 0TT.

If you meet the following criteria, they may be able to help you:

The Trust prefer to support organisations working in areas of high unemployment and deprivation. They favour charities which make good use of volunteers. The Trust support projects both in the UK and overseas, but for overseas projects only via UK charities which can ensure that funds are being well used.

They do not support:-
(a) Individuals (including GAP applicants)
(b) Conservation, heritage and environmental projects
(c) Conversions for disabled access
(d) Charities supporting animals
(e) Research.

Many applications are received and unfortunately they cannot give grants to them all. The Trust will reply at their own expense to successful applicants or to those whom they are seriously considering but need further information. They do not reply to unsuccessful applicants unless they have asked for further information. To save on your costs, please do not send a stamped addressed envelope.

Application Form: Apply in writing.

Deadline: Applications can be submitted at any time, however replies may take some time because the trustees only meet twice a year, normally in March and September.
