How to apply to Join the Sheffield Town Trust Subscription List
The Town Trust has operated a subscriptions list for many years, through which it has supported the central running costs of a number of local charities and organisations with committed funding for a period of 3 years at a time. This funding is not intended to support one-off projects which the normal quarterly application process covers but the Town Trust believes that having this certainty of funding for their central running costs at least gives charities and organisations some certainty so that they can plan their activities over that period.
In 2021 the Town Trust decided to update its approach to the Subscriptions List, to give grants for core costs only and could be in the region of £5,000 in total to be paid, in instalments, over three years. Applications will be open to all charities whose objects are to support the residents of Sheffield. Applications open on Monday 16th August 2021 and close on Monday 18th October 2021 at 5pm. Confirmation of the membership of the Subscriptions List will take place at the 15th November 2021 Trustee meeting.
The Subscriptions List application form is below.
