The Notgrove Trust

Who is The Notgrove Trust?

We’re a family grant making trust set up by Mr and Mrs David Acland in 1979. We support charities located only in Gloucestershire or those of special interest to the trustees. Notgrove Trust does not support medical research or personal applications and major national charities are unlikely to get a donation.

How do you apply for funding?

We prefer applications in writing stating what you do and why you want a grant.  All applications must include a full copy of their last years’ accounts.  As we have no clerical help applications are not acknowledged.
