The Kelly Family Charitable Trust is a grant-giving body founded in 2004 by members of the Kelly family.
They fund charities whose activities involve all or most family members, where possible, in initiatives that seek to tackle problems facing one or more of its members. This would be early intervention, mediation, prison services and services for families affected by sexual abuse, physical abuse and domestic violence, among others.
They offer grants worth up to £5,000 – though trustees will consider requests for higher amounts. They’re happy to fund charities’ core costs and encourage applications from relatively new charities to help them become established.
The trust prefers to support charities whose income is below £500,000. However, larger charities with pioneering pilot projects will be considered.
All applications should be made on the Kelly Family Charitable Trust’s official application form. Click here to access them.
