The Trustees shall apply the income of the Charity for the general benefit of the inhabitants of the Parish of Stanford in the Vale

Registered Charity No 266718

Stanford in the Vale is fortunate to have a Public Purposes Charity (PPC) whose origins date back to the 18th century when it was first set up to administer allotment lands on behalf of the Parish.

Nowadays, it uses the interest from well managed investments to deliver support to organisations in the parish who are actively supporting and strengthening the community.   

Each grant application is reviewed by the Trustees who consider if the project is appropriate, within the Charity Commission guidelines, and if the funding is for capital expenditure with a lasting legacy.   Trustees will provide feedback on applications and are keen to see new and worthwhile developments within Stanford in the Vale.

Grant Applications are welcome at any time and will be considered at the next Trustee meeting following receipt.   Unless there are extraordinary circumstances, Grant Applications will not be considered outside of Trustee Meetings.
