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. The Education & Charity Committee meetings take place quarterly, and the next meeting will take place on 26th September 2019.
One-off donations are usually between £250 and £2,000. For example, we have made donations to children’s and young people’s charities, 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 three-year grants are subject to review, after which they may continue for a further three years.
