The James Neill Trust Fund
Charity number: 503203
The James Neill Trust Fund was established by Marjorie Wike Coote (daughter of James Neill) in 1961, to be applied for such charitable purposes benefiting persons residing within 20 miles of Sheffield Cathedral as the Trustees in their absolute discretion shall from time to time determine.
It is the policy of the Trustees to give ongoing support (subject to annual review) to established voluntary organisations benefiting the qualifying area.
The Trustees also give sympathetic consideration to requests for “one off” grants to organisations requiring finance to meet “start-up” costs, capital costs offering long term benefits, or costs arising from unforeseen circumstances. No grants are given to individuals.
Applications are only considered once a year at the Annual Meeting of the Trustees of the James Neill Trust Fund in the early autumn. The James Neill Trust Fund does not have an Application Form.
Applications, with the information requested below (and ideally on your charity’s letterhead) should be sent by email during the month of July to the following email address:
