The Monument Trust
Trustees make grants in the following areas:
● Health and Community Care
● Arts and Heritage
● Criminal justice
The trust only funds registered charities or activities with clearly defined charitable purposes.
Trustees make grants in the following areas: Health and Community Care – substantial HIV/AIDS projects in the UK and Africa, social exclusion, the sexual health of young people, and hospices, Arts and Heritage – arts, architectural and environmental projects of national or regional importance, including galleries, museums, and historic houses and gardens. Proposals are particularly welcome for cultural projects which will make a major contribution to improving economically depressed areas, Criminal justice – including prisoners’ resettlement, advice and mentoring, and alternatives to custody.
Applications should be sent by post to The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts, with a description (strictly no more than two pages please, as any more is unlikely to be read) of the proposed project. The Monument Trust is part of the Sainsbury Family of Charitable Trusts and they work together to receive applications, with them being sent on to the most relevant.
It should be understood that the majority of unsolicited proposals The Trust receive will be unsuccessful. The Monument Trust will consider exceptional proposals which fit closely their specific areas of interest.
