If the charity’s work accords with our strategy, the appeal is considered by our Education & Charity Committee. The Committee may then decide to award a small one-off donation or a larger three-year grant.
One-off donations are usually between £250 and £1,000. For example, we have made donations to children’s and young people’s charities, medical research organisations and for the benefit of people within the City of London.
Longer-term funding is provided to selected organisations that meet all our priorities and currently include schools, youth organisations and cadets, for example.
All our three-year grants are subject to review, after which they may continue for a further three years.
