Trust Grant Policies

The Trust is not restricted as to which particular charitable purposes it can support or in which area it may grant funds, but has a preference to fund projects that give benefits to the communities within the Trust area.
While some Trusts conduct regular calls for grant applications every year or operate an on-going grant process, the JCT has a preference for less frequent grants for capital works projects. This enables larger grants to be provided.

The Trust will consider grant applications four times a year in February, May, August and November. All applications are to be in the hands of the Secretary by the 15th of the month preceding. The Trustees’ decision as to whether or not an application is or is not approved is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

The Trust , however, continues to promote and as necessary fund a local Christmas Lunch for Senior Citizens. Approximately 250 have attended each year in recent years.
