April 2021 – Unfortunately we are unable to accept any further grant applications at present. This is a temporary situation, so please check the web site for any updates.
Our Application Process Explained
Please complete the form below, providing a short summary (150 words) describing your project and clearly stating how this application fits with the charitable objectives of the trust. This can be completed online and sent directly to our administrators, or alternatively you can request a paper copy for completion (0131 656 0022 – Trust secretary) and return this by post.
All “stage 1” enquiries are reviewed at regular intervals by the trustees. Each charity will be contacted once their form has been reviewed and successful applicants will then be invited to complete a more detailed “stage 2” application form.
(This stage 2 form will be posted or emailed to you individually)
The stage 2 applications are all reviewed by the trustees at their 6 monthly meetings (Spring and Autumn) when funding decisions are made. Applicants will be contacted by the trust administrator following these meetings to inform them of the trustees decisions.
If my charity has previously been supported by the Maple Trust do I follow the same application process?
After 2 years, The Maple Trust will consider applications from organisations they have previously supported. You will however, be required to follow the above process.
If my charity Stage 1 application is unsuccessful can I re-apply at a future date?
If your charity fits within our donations criteria, we will consider a further application after 2 years.
