The Trust makes grants to charitable bodies at the discretion of the Trustees. They focus most of their support on organisations based in Bedfordshire or projects that benefit the people of that county. A small number of national charities with a focus on family social welfare issues are also supported. The Trustees are also sympathetic towards applications received from organisations of which the late Humphrey Whitbread was a benefactor.
In the case of an application on behalf of a Church, these are handled on our behalf by the Beds and Herts Historic Churches Trust (BHHCT). Please see the Application Process and Forms section for their contact details.
