Many charities and organisations help the RNBT Family in a wide variety of ways. Much as we appreciate all the they do, we are only able to offer a limited financial contribution to some of them.
A Small Part of our Budget
The RNBT concentrates mainly on giving help direct to individuals who are in need, so Grants to Organisations are a small part of our budget. In total, they amount to about £40,000 each year directed at about a dozen organisations.
Grant Linked to Numbers Assisted
Organisations, especially smaller ones, which assist a significant number of members of the RNBT Family, are the most likely to be selected to receive a Grant. The maximum amount is seldom more than £5,000.
Most of our Grants to Organisations are based on the number of members of the RNBT Family helped by the organisation during the year. For example, we support a hospice in the Plymouth area with a flat rate grant for each member of the RNBT Family who is cared for by the hospice, up to a maximum of £6,000 each year. Grants are made for both on-going activities and one-off events.
Most Organisations Selected Annually
The main group of organisations to be assisted is selected each December for the financial year commencing in the following April. However, applications will be considered throughout the year subject to budget availability.
How to Apply
For the annual selection, applications should be submitted to the RNBT by 30 October. The case for assistance should be set out in a letter accompanied by the organisations Annual Report and Accounts for the previous year and budgets for the current year and forthcoming year (if available). Other applications may be made at any time.
