The Trust was established under a deed dated 11th December 1986 by Gwyneth Forrester in memory of her late husband Donald who died on 25th February 1985. It is a registered charity number 295833.

D.ForresterTrust-iDGrants are made twice yearly, in March and September, to a wide ranging number of charities and amounted to £689,479 for the year ended 5th April 2017. The Trustees meet twice yearly in February/March and August/September to consider applications and will look favourably on charities where we feel overhead and fund raising costs are kept to a minimum and our grant will have maximum impact.

The Forrester Trusts

To make an application please either write to the Trust at 11, Whitecroft Way, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 3AQ or via ah@forrestertrusts.com, being sure to state whether you are applying to the Donald Forrester Trust or the Gwyneth Forrester Trust. Ideally, your application should not exceed four sides of A4. We do not offer guidance on the format of your application but please include details of the impact you think a grant from us might make to your work. We do not need to receive a full set of accounts although it would be helpful if a brief indication of your financial position could be provided.

Applications should be submitted no later than 30th June and 31st December as that will give us sufficient time to contact you prior to the Trustees meeting should clarification of any part of your application be required.

APPLICATIONS FOR THE SEPTEMBER 2018 ROUND OF GRANTS ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE, ANY FUTURE APPLICATIONS RECEIVED WILL BE CONSIDERED IN MARCH 2019.

A list of successful applicants will be posted to this site. Please note we are not able to enter into correspondence regarding applications as it is our aim to keep our administration costs to a minimum.
