Grants to Organisations

Depending upon its surplus income the Board will award grants towards capital projects.  Each application will be prioritised on merit against the total funds available that year.  In the case of larger projects the Board may consider partnership funding with other charities.  If a joint application to another maritime charity is being made, the Board will accept applications on the other organisations form.

The Board will consider grants of up to £5000 for small projects throughout the year.  Grants in excess of £5000 will normally be decided towards the end of each calendar year.  

All grants for local purposes must be reviewed by the appropriate Port Welfare Committee and their view will be taken into account.
