The Purey Cust Trust is a Registered Charity established in 1984.
WHAT DOES THE TRUST DO?
The aim of the Trust is to promote the advancement of health and healing in and around the City of York area through monetary grants to individuals, organisations and registered charities.
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Grants can be made for the benefit of anybody residing in and around the City of York area, including, children, young adults and older people. Each application is considered on its own merit. There is no restriction on the medical condition suffered by the beneficiary or beneficiaries. Please see our How to Apply page for further information and advice.
The Trust makes grants for specific medical needs rather than offering help with core costs, general funding or office/administration costs and it is not willing to buy property. The Trust has previously made capital awards, one-off grants and helped with start up costs for new groups or organisations. Recent grants have ranged from £100 to £10,000. Sometimes the Trust has worked with others to jointly fund particular projects.
Please read all the information and guidelines very carefully. If you then feel that your application meets our charitable objectives, please go to our How to Apply page. There you will find further information and guidance together with an Application Form. The Trustees meet regularly throughout the year, although an application may take up to two months to process. In very urgent cases, Trustees have the flexibility to consider applications outside of meetings.
