Core funding for grassroots causes

Yapp Charitable Trust only offer grants to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000 who are undertaking work with their priority groups:

  • Elderly people
  • Children and young people aged 5 – 25
  • People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges
  • Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending)
  • Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)

They will not fund work that does not focus on one of the above priority groups.

They only make grants for core funding.  They define core funding as the costs associated with regular activities or services that have been ongoing for at least a year.  They can not fund new projects, extra services or additional delivery costs. This includes creating a paid post for work that is currently undertaken on a voluntary basis or rent for premises that are currently cost free.

They can only offer grants to registered charities that have been formally established for a minimum of three years. Newly registered charities may apply but the organisation must have appointed a management committee and adopted a governing document at least 3 years ago.

Yapp prioritise:

  • Work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders
  • Services that help to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people
  • Applicants that can demonstrate an effective use of volunteers
  • Charities that seek to be preventive and aim to change opinion and behaviour through raising awareness of issues, education and campaigning
  • Applicants that can demonstrate (where feasible) an element of self sustainability by charging subscriptions/fees to service users

Applications that don’t address at least two of the above are unlikely to receive a grant.
