The New Grove Trust has been supporting community organisations operating within the Monmouthshire, Forest of Dean and South Herefordshire areas since 2010.
It is with some sadness that we the Trustees must report that the New Grove Trust has now closed to new applications.
The Trustees met in June 2017 to review any applications that had been received before the end of April 2017 and any awards agreed at this meeting will be made before the end of June 2017. Funds will be maintained for any conditional grants that had been committed by the Trust, but have yet to be paid awaiting confirmation that the conditions have been met.
The New Grove Trust will have served its intended purpose, distributing the funds that had been made available to the Trust in accordance with the Trust aims and objectives. The New Grove Trust has become dormant, but may become active in the future if further funds become available.
We are delighted to say that since the Trust started in 2010 we have made over 440 grant awards (June 2017) and have been able to help over 320 community organisations, with total grant awards well in excess of £650,000.
We wish all of the recipients of grants every success in the future and hope that other funding sources continue to support community organisations operating within the Monmouthshire, Forest of Dean and South Herefordshire areas.
