A grants committee has been appointed by the trustees to receive and review applications and make recommendations to the trustees.
The trustees maintain a network of local authorities and community groups to remain well informed of ongoing community needs. They acknowledge that critical needs in the community will change over time.
Grants are made on an annual basis in accordance with the instructions given by each donor of named endowment funds and in accordance with the prescribed terms of each special purpose endowment fund.
Grants from the General Purpose Endowment Fund are based on the most needy causes.
