How to Apply

The Box Moor Trust makes available annually a small grant fund for local organisations.  These are one-off grants to be used for purchase of equipment or for other capital projects.  To qualify, organisations must be operating in the Box Moor Trust area of benefit, which broadly covers Hemel Hempstead and Bovingdon. Grants are awarded for any sum up to a maximum figure of £2,500 and organisations may only apply at intervals of 3 years since their last successful application. Applications for the next round will be invited from local groups and organisations that meet the qualifying criteria from 1st April 2019 and will close on 30th June 2019.  Successful applicants will be notified during the month of September 2019 and distribution of funds will be during the year ending 30th September 2020.  Application forms and guidelines will be available to download from this site from April 2019.
