The Fernhurst Trust is a small Charitable Trust which was set up in 2014.  We offer grants exclusively to registered charities whose work at the heart of communities in North Yorkshire (including the City of York) provides sustainable benefit under one or more of the following themes:

Theme one

Helping young people to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.

Theme two

The advancement of education, training or retraining among unemployed people.

Theme three

The provision of financial assistance, technical assistance or business advice in order to provide training and employment opportunities for unemployed people through help in setting up their own business, or through help to existing small businesses.

Our grants

Typically, our grants range from £1,000 to £5,000.

The trustees usually meet twice a year to make grant awards.  The next deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 24th May 2019 for the June 2019 meeting.
