A B Charitable Trust’s 2019/20 Round Open to Applications

| Return|

The A B Charitable Trust (ABCT) is an independent, UK based grant-making organisation founded in 1990 that is concerned with promoting and defending human dignity.

Grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 are available to registered charities with an annual income of between £150,000 and £1.5 million that seek to address the needs of the most marginalised and neglected groups in society.

To be eligible, projects should focus on at least one of the following priority categories:

  • Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

  • Criminal justice and penal reform.

  • Human rights, particularly access to justice.

The funding can be used for project or core costs.

Charities need to be based and working in the UK. The Trust does not fund charities working overseas or charities with large national or international links.

This funding is in high demand, and only around a third of eligible applicants will receive a grant.

There are four application deadlines within a year.

The next deadline for applications is 28 July 2019.

How To Apply

The application deadlines for 2019/20 are:

  • 28 July 2019

  • 27 October 2019

  • 26 January 2020

  • 26 April 2020

An online application form must be submitted with a funding proposal, no longer than 1,200 words in Microsoft Word format, including background, aims and objectives, activities and achievements.

Applications and funding proposals should be uploaded along with following supporting documents:

  • Signed copy of the charity's latest accounts/statements, with a reporting date that is no more than 12 months prior to the application deadline.

  • The organisation's latest management accounts and the projected surplus/deficit for the current financial year.

  • Up to two items of publicity material that illustrate the work of the charity, such as annual reviews or leaflets.
