A grant-giving charity that supports innovative and pioneering Social, Medical and Religious projects, to enable human flourishing and to prevent suffering.

The Trust funds a wide range of organisations to achieve this goal, with grants normally ranging from one to three years in duration and up to circa £60,000 per project (with a £30,000 limit per year), although in exceptional cases up to £80,000 may be considered.  The Trust is underpinned by Christian values, but welcomes applications from other faith and non-faith projects.

Who we are

The Trust is a grant-giving foundation established by Sir Halley Stewart in 1924.  It is concerned with the development of people’s minds, bodies and spirits, and promotes a just environment and international good will through its grant-making.

The Trust is managed by a full-time Secretary, Trustees from the Stewart family and experts in the Trust’s special areas of interest.

Our Trustees meet three times a year to award grants to UK-based charitable organisations, for both national and international projects.

What we do

The Trust has a particular focus on supporting innovative research projects and new pioneering development projects, primarily through the provision of salary costs.  We fund Medical, Social and Religious projects, with Education being a theme that runs across all three grant-making areas.

Our grants budget for the financial year 2018/19 is £1.1m and we have two types of funding awards: Main Grants (normally up to £60,000, with a £30,000 limit per year) and a limited number of Small Grants (one-off grants for projects costing up to £5,000).
