Grant making process


All grant requests go through a three-stage process as summarised below: 


Application – all grant applications will be subject to initial assessment to ensure they meet the basic criteria for funding. Requests that cannot be allocated to available funds are rejected.


Assessment – trustees will determine whether the request should be shortlisted for support. Shortlisted applications will be reviewed by a grants review committee, the Board of Trustees, or by a person acting with the delegated authority of the Board of Trustees.


Decision – requests not shortlisted are rejected. Grants not recommended are rejected, unless allocated to another fund. All grants must be approved/confirmed by the Board of Trustees or a person/committee acting with its delegated authority.

The process

The grant process unfolds in three stages; application, assessment, and decision. The process may last several months. Feedback is provided within 90 days.


a) The trust will aim to write to all applicants informing them of the outcome of their application for funding within 90 days from the bid deadline.

b) Applicants should note that, as with many other charitable trusts or foundations, LEBE trust may receive far more applications than it has funds to support. Even if a project fits within the criteria and priorities of the trust and a detailed assessment has been made, the trust may still be unable to provide a grant.

c) The Board of Trustees will not be obliged to provide an explanation to the applicant should their application be unsuccessful.
