What We Do

This Foundation makes money grants to people under 25 living in the parish of Eynsham. It has a maximum of about £3,000 available each year to distribute in grants.

Every application is considered on its merits. Anyone who qualifies may apply - the scheme is not restricted to people with a low income.

Grants may be made ...

  • To help apprentices or trainees buy tools, books, instruments, clothing, etc. when they leave school or college and want to enter a trade or profession;
  • To assist travel abroad for educational purposes;
  • To help those studying music or other arts;
  • To assist in providing physical training or recreational or social facilities of any kind not normally made available by the educational authority;
  • To provide financial assistance at school or college; and
  • To promote in any other way the education of people who qualify.

Grants can also be made ...

... to bodies providing educational facilities (including physical training, recreational or social facilities) for people under 25 in the parish, provided these grants are for particular educational purposes and the Foundation meets the needs of individual applicants first.

How to Apply

The Trustees meet four times a year, usually in February, May, August / September and November. They will consider your application and will be in touch with you as soon as possible afterwards. Please send in your application the month before the next meeting if you can.
