The Board of Trustees will not normally approve/support applications for:
a) purposes for which the government has a statutory responsibility to provide;
b) large, well-funded national charities i.e. those with an annual income in excess of £5 million or with £50+ million assets, or charities dedicated to issues deemed by the Board of Trustees to be already well funded;
c) organisations with free or unrestricted reserves;
d) general appeals, fundraising appeals or marketing appeals;
e) one-off conferences or events, except where these events align with our funding priorities, the alignment to these priorities being clearly demonstrated;
f) partisan or evangelical groups or organisations whose mission or charitable objectives state an intention to proselytise. As a values-based organisation, we will however consider offering support to faith-based organisations which are doing demonstrably positive and impactful work in BAME community, without a proselytization agenda; or
g) activities which appear to, or actively seek to, influence public opinion in favour of a particular political party or promote political partisanship.
