Guidelines and restrictions

The Trustees as a matter of general policy do not consider applications which would involve the Trust in core funding or on-going financing. The Trust does not provide funding for applications with a foreign element nor does it in general consider personal applications or applications for Sports Clubs/Associations.

The Trustees prefer projects/schemes which involve or are directed towards capital expenditure.

Because of the large number of applications which the Trust receives the Trustees’ present policy is to support local charities, i.e. within the North East of England, or those in which Dame Catherine had had an interest and/or have a local benefit.

“Fear is the enemy, fear is the foe, if you run before it down you’ll go. But if you stand and look it in the face, God will pour into you the bravery of grace.”
