One of our charitable objectives is to provide grants to other charitable community organisations in the North East of England.
The Hospital of God's Grant Committee meets on an annual basis to allocate grant funding.
Grant applications must be submitted via the online application portal by 31 January 2024 at 11:55pm. The Grants Committee will review all applications by mid-February 2024. All organisations that submit an online application will be notified of the outcome of their application.
Successful grant applications will be awarded funding mid-April 2024.
The maximum grant award is £3,000.
You may apply each year for funding for your projects or organisation.
Our grant fund is available to help and support people in the communities of the North East, specifically Hartlepool, Stockton-on-Tees, Darlington, County Durham, Sunderland, Gateshead, South Tyneside, North Tyneside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Northumberland. Note: unfortunately Middlesbrough is not included in our geographical area.
Applications must be made electronically using the online application portal, which must be completed in full. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
You can start filling in the online application form and save it as a draft and complete it later - as long as we receive the completed form before the deadline.
If you should encounter any problems completing the form or have specific questions, please feel free to contact us on (01429) 870247.
