Tudor Trust - closing to new applications for a year from 1st April 2022
From 1st April 2022 to 31stMarch 2023 they will be closed to ‘new’ applications: that is applications from groups they are not already funding.
- Over this period they will still consider applications for continuation funding from groups currently being funded.
- They are reducing their direct grant making in this way to create time and space for Tudor’s staff and trustees to re-think how the Trust operates.
- Over the year they will also be looking for opportunities to ‘devolve’ some of their grant making by providing funds to a number of partner or intermediary organisations for distribution.
- They will continue to assess applications under their current guidelines throughout February and March 2022. However, they will not be taking any more applications through to second stage than usual – so competition is likely to be strong.
The temporary closure to new applications will allow them to set aside time to re-think how the Trust operates in future. A key driver for this is the learning they have done around racial justice, and how they can embed this both internally and through their grant making. They’ll also be looking at how they build all aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion more fully into their work, and challenging themselves around accessibility and power dynamics.
While they have made a start on this, the day-to-day work of being a relational funder, particularly in these challenging times, has left little time for more in-depth, strategic work. Temporarily closing to new applicants will free up time for them to do the work needed to make them a better, more accountable funder.
They will be publishing updated funding guidelines, which will draw on the work they’re carrying out over the next year, on 1st April 2023.
