The Grassroots Trust Limited Board generally meets every month to review grant applications.

Completed grant applications must be submitted on or before the application closing date prior to the Board meeting in which the application is to be considered.

Applications submitted after this date will be held for consideration the month following.  It is recommended that grant applications are submitted at least TWO MONTHS before the funding is required, otherwise the application may be declined or not meet your funding deadline.

Applications started but not submitted within 20 days will be archived.  You will receive an alert email before this happens.

We encourage Organisations to seek funding from a number of sources as there is never any guarantee of funding.
