WE ASK ALL APPLICANTS READ OUR PRIVACY STATEMENT BEFORE USING THE BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE TO ACCESS OUR ONLINE APPLICATION FORM.
Our Privacy Statement, which is below, provides details of the basis on which we collect and retain applicants’ personal data and the rights that individuals have in relation to their data and how these can be exercised.
How We Collect Your Personal Information
We collect your information when you decide to interact with us. This would normally be when you are submitting a funding application to us either by completing our on-line application form to our “Ad Hoc” Grant programme or by sending us an application by email or in writing for consideration under our Long Term Grant programme or Trustees’ Discretionary Grant programme.
The Types of Information We Collect
We only collect the information that’s necessary to carry out our work and to process your application for funding and deliver and monitor any resulting grant.
1. We will collect the following information relating to grant applications: name of applicant, contact details of applicant including email and telephone number, name and address of applicant organisation, copy of application for funding.
How We Handle Your Information
1. We will never share, sell, rent or trade your personal information to any third parties without your prior consent.
