A B Charitable Trust
The A B Charitable Trust (ABCT) is an independent, UK based grant-making organisation founded in 1990 that is concerned with promoting and defending human dignity.
The Trust awards grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 each year to small to medium-sized charities registered and working in the UK.
The Trust’s focus is on unpopular causes reaching the most vulnerable and marginalised in society, and supporting groups that defend human rights and promote respect for vulnerable individuals in the UK.
Charities should have an annual income of between £150,000 and £1.5 million and no substantial investments or surpluses.
The funding is for charities specifically working to support:
- Refugees and asylum seekers.
- Prisoners and penal reform.
- Human rights.
The fund is in high demand, and only around a third of eligible applicants are likely to receive funding.
The deadlines for application: 1 December 2017, 2 March 2018 and 18 May 2018.
