The GBCT welcomes grant applications from groups, communities and charities that are pursuing these aims and where its contribution can make a real difference. Trustees are particularly keen to support small organisations or groups that make a direct impact on communities
The Trust has few restrictions on the purpose for which a grant may be made, providing it is in keeping with the aims. Capital investments, expeditions, projects and other costs will be considered. You can read about the application in more detail on their website.
General Information on Grants
- Grants are generally made as single payments.
- Unsuccessful grant applicants must wait 12 months from the date of rejection before resubmitting.
- Grants for periods of longer than one year may be considered.
- A follow-up report will be required – usually at the conclusion of the project or activity or after 12 months – whichever is the sooner or appropriate. The timeframe for a report will be listed as a condition alongside the confirmation of a grant.

About The George Bairstow Charitable Trust
The GBCT was created in memory of George Bairstow, who lived his life to help and support others but was tragically killed in a car accident in the early hours of 6 November 2013, on his return from a volunteer shift with St John Ambulance.
Selfless, generous and hands-on, George gave a great deal of his time to charitable organisations and had a positive impact on a wide range of communities – the GBCT intends to continue George’s good work and to ensure communities benefit from his legacy.
