EMERGENCY FUNDING APPEALS: We are actively supporting charities through the Coronavirus pandemic, and welcome emergency funding applications from charities we have previously supported.


The application should include the following key points :

The name and address of your organisation; telephone number and email address.

The nature of your organisation; its structure, aims and
who it serves; and its links with other agencies and networks.

The project or funding need. What is the grant to be used for and who will benefit from it.

When is the funding required; the date of the project or event.

The bank account payee name of your organisation.

Any links to the Hull and East Yorkshire region, or the Quakers (which together are our funding priorities).

A copy of your latest Annual Report and Accounts or equivalent.

How to apply

There is no application form. Applications should be made by letter or email and these will be considered by trustees at their twice-yearly meetings in May and November. Please ensure your application is received at least a month in advance of these dates.

The Charity receives many requests for support and in making their decisions the trustees give priority to causes within the local area (which is Hull and East Yorkshire) and to causes related to the Society of Friends (Quakers).

Grants generally fall within the range of between £1,000 and £10,000 although larger grants can be considered. Small grants can be made outside of the scheduled meetings, particularly if there is an element of urgency involved.

The Charity has a 'two year rule' for repeat grants. Further appeals will not normally be considered until two years have elapsed since a previous application (whether successful or unsuccessful), except in emergencies.

Applications to the Consortium of Grant Giving Trusts (Hull and East Yorkshire) should only be made by the agency working with the individual or family. The Consortium application form - which may be downloaded from the LINKS page - is not to be used for any other purpose.


Your Application should be sent to :

The Administrator
The Sir James Reckitt Charity
