Name of main contact *


Name of organisation (where relevant)


Position within organisation (where relevant)


Postal address *


Email address * Web site

Personal applicants only: Year of birth Nationality CV attached? Yes/No


Amount of funding sought from The Fenton Arts Trust (full pounds only)

Please look at the ‘Previous Beneficiaries’ page on the website. Requests for amounts way above anything previously given are unlikely to be successful. It is also open to you to indicate ‘or any amount’.


Budget for complete project (if total cost is greater than funding sought)

Please attach separately if necessary.

It is important for the Trust to understand what proportion of the total cost any grant might cover.


‘Headline’ description of the project (or part of project) for which funding is required *

A concise description of the project, clearly stating how it fits the Trust’s funding criteria, which can be found on the ‘What We Do’ page of our website. (This section should be a maximum of 140 characters in length.)

This is an ESSENTIAL section of the form. Trustees need to understand immediately exactly how the funds of the Trust might be spent. For what exactly do you want the money? What do you hope to achieve?


Additional information about the project

This is your chance to add detail to your project description. (Please limit yourself to 250 words maximum.) Lengthy descriptions of past, present or future activities are not relevant here – they have a place below, under Brief description of your work or that of your organisation.


Date by which you need a decision from the Trust

Ideally this should be a minimum of 4 months after your application date.

The Trust meets 3 times a year to consider applications, and this allows for an application to be put forward for a later meeting should it accidentally coincide with an earlier deadline. Experience shows that projects which are planned well in advance of their delivery dates are often the most successful.


Date when funds from the Trust are required (Please see note below re. timing of applications)

A minimum of 6 months normally elapses before the Trust both makes a decision and has sufficient funds in its budget. In most financial years (April-March) the majority of funds in the current year’s budget are committed by July.

THE FENTON ARTS TRUST APPLICATION FORM


Details of any funding already raised (confirmed and/or pending)

Please give details separately if necessary. As above


Brief description of your work or that of your organisation. (250 words maximum)

This section provides the opportunity for you to provide all the information which will place your specific proposal in its proper overall context, whether as part of a larger project or as part of the general work of the organisation.

You can send supplementary material to support your application, but in the first instance the Trust is looking for carefully focused, well considered and clearly expressed project proposals. Experience suggests that a text no longer than 250 words can communicate the essentials of such proposals.


If you are an individual applying for funding, please provide a single page curriculum vitae, with relevant details of your work and experience to-date, and the names and addresses of two referees.*

Essential for individual applicants


How did you hear about The Fenton Arts Trust?*

Please be as specific as possible: if you found us via internet research we would be grateful to know on which website. (If you are a previous beneficiary please tell us, and give the year/s in which you received support.)


This helps the Trustees know where information about the Trust is being publicised, and, if necessary, allows the Trust to rectify inaccuracies or misinformation about its funding criteria. Previous beneficiaries should refer to the date/s or their previous grants from the Trust.
