Ballinger Charitable TrustGrant applications remain on hold in 2022

Covid-19 – Important Notice

Please note that our usual online grant application process remains on hold for now. This decision has been reached due to the on-going uncertainty over our income during the current period.

As we have less income to distribute as grants in the short-term, we will focus on maintaining current grant relationships wherever possible.  This will save abortive work in preparing online applications when we do not have the same level of financial resource to support with grants.

The above will be monitored closely, and reviewed by the Trustees at our quarterly meetings – although it is likely that this situation will continue throughout 2022.

The founders and trustees of the Ballinger Charitable Trust have close ties to North East England and are mostly still based in the region.

Our criteria for eligibility are that you are a charity or organisation with a charitable purpose, and that the project for which you seek funding is specifically focused on North East England. We currently prioritise those working specifically within areas of deprivation.

Please note that we are unable to accept applications from individuals, or those organisations located outside the region.
