INFORMATION AND GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS
1. This programme is available to registered or exempt charities operating within the United Kingdom, and is for capital projects only.
2. The purpose of the programme is to support innovation in the provision of (a) infrastructure for medical research in universities and hospitals, and (b) an original care model for the severely disabled. For further information about both of these categories, please follow the link to Medically Related Donations
on the Trust's website.
3. This form is designed for use as a first stage Expression of Interest. Further information about the subsequent application process for those who are successful at this first stage, is given on the Trust's website
under How We Fund. Charities wishing to apply should complete the form below, ensuring you attach all required documents.
Please note, this form can be saved by clicking the 'Save & Return' box above.
4. Potential applicants should note that it is not possible for the Trust to make donations to:
a. Beneficiaries who do not have registered charity status,
b. Overseas organisations, or to organisations based in the UK who are seeking support for a project overseas,
c. Faith-based charities.
5. Expressions of Interest may be submitted from 1st December to 28th February. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to provide a fully detailed application which will be presented to the Board of Trustees for a decision at its meeting in the autumn.
6. Please note that:-
Substantial demand for the Trust's limited and finite resources means that application for a Medically Related Donation is a competitive process. Submission of an Expression of Interest does not guarantee shortlisting or the award of funding.
The Trust does not accept further applications within three years of a previous award under this scheme, or within two years of an unsuccessful bid for funding under this scheme. In both cases the timescales are from the month of the Trust's decision.
For sums below £1500 the Ann Rylands Small Donation Programme application process should be used.
