The twenty third edition of this comprehensive reference work covers 2,500 grant-making trusts, each with the potential to give at least £25,000 in total per year, collectively giving around £4.3 billion.

With fully updated information supplied by the trusts themselves, the entries include:

• geographical area supported by the trust
• concise contact details
• what is and what is not funded
• type and range of grants made
• examples of recent beneficiaries.

The extensive indexes – by geographical area, field of interest and type of beneficiary, and type of grant – allow users to target the trusts that are most relevant to their needs.

- Foreword by Mark Astarita FRSA MInstF MIPR, Director of Fundraising British Red Cross and Chair of IoF

‘Using this directory, I raised tens of thousands of pounds for one of the hardest causes going. My fundraisers still use The Directory of Grant Making Trusts every day to help raise millions of pounds.’
From the Foreword by Mark Astarita
Chair of Trustees, Institute of Fundraising. Director of Fundraising, British Red Cross

‘The organisation and layout of this book makes searching for suitable grants as time efficient as possible, providing succinct details around each opportunity: crucial aspects for any charitable fundraiser.’
Tessa Osman, Head of Sustainability & Development, The Dash Charity

‘Over the last 20 years the directory has become a trusted friend I wouldn’t be without. It is easy to use, accurate and gives a good overview of current criteria and trust interests. Particularly useful to identify small and medium-sized trusts and as an aide to find bigger trusts which have their own websites. ’
John Williams
Head of Fundraising and Development, Ataxia UK

‘A superb fundraising research tool: with succinct information on charitable trusts’ policies, grant ranges, recipients and contact details, it’s the first step to finding new partners to help your charitable work. Invaluable may be an overused word, but this book is exactly that.’
Andrew Betts, Fundraiser
Advantage Africa

‘This Directory is the basic tool in the armoury of the fundraiser.’
Interlink Foundation
