Group Guidelines

Who can apply to the Trust
The Trustees of the Fisher Parkinson trust will only accept applications from groups working in or associated to the villages of Wimblington, Hook, and Stonea, Cambridgeshire as set out in our objectives and subject to the following conditions:

Applying for a Grant
Applications from groups are invited at any time throughout the year but note the Trustees only meet quarterly to review applications and award grants.
All applications are assessed against the Fisher Parkinson Trust criteria:

Decision on Application
All Applicants will be advised in writing of the Trustees decision. The Trustee’s decision is final.

Conditions of Acceptance of Grant

All grant monies must be spent within six months of the grant being gifted. If monies are not spent within this period the Trust may request they are repaid in full. Grant monies can only be used for the purposes as detailed in the Grant Application otherwise the monies must be returned to the Trust. The Trust reserves the right to request copy invoices of any expenditure relating to the grant to certify expenditure.

Monitoring & Evaluation
The Fisher Parkinson Trust has to ensure that all grants have been appropriately spent in line with the charitable objectives. An end of project report will be required detailing the difference the grant has made to your group and beneficiaries. Failure to comply with the above could result in the Trust requesting the return of the grant.
