How do I apply for funding from Postcode Active Trust?
Postcode Active Trust does not accept unsolicited applications. The Trust currently funds a selection of charities meeting the objectives of the Trust. It is proactive in approaching charities and, as funds grow, will thoroughly research and select potential beneficiaries who will be invited to apply.
When an opportunity arises for the Trust to consider adding a new beneficiary, the Trust team identify any gaps in the current funding portfolio in line with the trust strategy and current sector needs. Potential beneficiaries are then identified and researched, carrying out due diligence on their impact, financial stability, thematic and geographical focus. Shortlisted beneficiaries are assessed by the Trust Team in person and presented to the Board. Approved charities are then asked to formally apply and present their application in person to the Board, which is either approved, rejected or further information requested.
