Endowment with Sussex Community Foundation

In Lawson Trust News by The Lawson Trust

The Lawson Trust is excited to announce an endowment collaboration with Sussex Community Foundation (SCF). We have entrusted SCF with a donation of £2.5 million which will be invested as an endowment for Sussex.

Our fund with SCF will make grants in each of SCF’s three grant-making rounds and the first deadline for applications is Friday 4th May 2018. Grants are to support charities and not-for-profit organisations in Sussex, with an income of under one million pounds. Grants will be made across a wide range of areas, include older people, children and young people, health and disability, disadvantage, arts and culture.

The trustees of The Lawson Trust are delighted that the partnership with both Sussex Community Foundation and Kent Community Foundation will continue to ensure that the Lawsons’ original charitable objectives are reaching some of the most dynamic grass roots not-for-profit organisations in Kent and Sussex.

Please visit Sussex Community Foundation’s website for details on how to apply.
