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 are now invited from local groups and organisations that meet the qualifying criteria and will close on 30th June 2021.  Successful applicants will be notified during the month of September 2021 and distribution of funds will be during the year ending 30th September 2022.
