Marjorie Coote Old Peoples Charity Fund
Charity number: 226747
The Marjorie Coote Old Peoples Charity Fund was established by Marjorie Wike Coote in 1958, to be applied by the Trustees in such manner as they shall in their absolute discretion think fit for the benefit of old people of small means who were born in, or have resided for not less than 20 years in, the area of jurisdiction of the Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire, this being substantially the same as the County of South Yorkshire, excluding Doncaster, which does not lie within our funding area.
It is the policy of the Trustees to concentrate their support on established charitable organisations which work actively for the benefit of old people in the area of jurisdiction. However, the Trustees are prepared to consider support for new initiatives by other organisations working for the benefit of old people in South Yorkshire.
Applications are only considered once a year at the Annual Meeting of the Trustees of the Marjorie Coote Old Peoples Charity Fund in the early autumn. The Trust 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:
Any applications received after 31 July will not be considered in that year.
