Edith Murphy Foundation

How To Apply

 The Foundation’s trustees meet four times a year to consider grant applications and manage the Foundation business. Dates are fixed three months in advance but tend to be in January, April, July and October.

 The Foundation proudly works with Ludlow Trust Company Ltd to manage the charity’s business.

 Applications for registered charities must be made online through the Ludlow Funding Enquiry Gateway – Ludlow’s Funding Enquiry Gateway | Ludlow Trust Company.  Use of the gateway will ensure that the proposal is brought to the attention of the Trustees quickly and allow the applicant to apply to other grant making charities managed by Ludlow.

 For charities that are not registered with the Charity Commission, applications can be emailed to charitabletrusts@ludlowtrust.com or sent through the post to the following address:

 c/o Ludlow Trust Company Ltd,
1st Floor,
Tower Wharf,
Cheese Lane,

 Please ensure that you provide the following information when making an application:

  • The charity name
  • The charity registration number provided by the Charity Commission
  • What the grant will be used for
  • Who will benefit
  • The amount being requested with a breakdown of the costs being incurred
  • Other fundraising activities and the amount raised to date

 Grants are made to organisations that are not registered charities. For these applications, the same information will be required.  You will also be asked to complete a form to clarify the tax residency of your organisation and additional documentation may be requested depending on your organisations structure.

 As a registered charity the Foundation is required to demonstrate public benefit. As such no applications from individuals are considered.
