Gilstrap Trust Grant Scheme

Newark and Sherwood District Council is the Sole Trustee of the Gilstrap Charity and has set-up a Committee called the Trustee Board of the Gilstrap and William Edward Knight Charities to undertake the Trustee role.  The membership of the Trustee Board is drawn from the Council’s Newark Wards to reflect the fact that the Charity’s purpose is to benefit residents of the Town.

The Charity has established a funding pot with the express purpose of inviting funding applications for projects, events and initiatives which reflect the Charity’s purposes and objectives.

Any application for funding must demonstrate benefit to the inhabitants of Newark. You can apply for a grant and find out more on the The Gilstrap Trust website.
