About The Alfred Haines Charitable Trust

The Trustees prefer to support specific projects and concentrate on helping smaller charities based in Birmingham and the immediate surrounding area. They meet quarterly to consider written applications for grants.

The majority of donations are made on a one-off basis. Sometimes the Trust will agree to fund a project annually for up to three years subject to receipt of satisfactory project reports.

The Trust is willing to support Christian social action projects involving outreach into the community through care. However, it does not support purely evangelistic projects.

Projects overseas or outside the West Midlands, will only be considered where the applicants are known to a trustee or are recommended by someone known to a trustee who has first hand knowledge of the work.

Apart from the regular grants, grants are generally made on a one off basis.

The Trust will consider further applications for funding after ten months have elapsed from the last payment.

Appeals should be addressed to:

Alfred Haines Charitable Trust
Dale Farm
Worcester Lane
Sutton Coldfield
B75 5PR

Before making an appeal please check your project/appeal against the exclusion list.

The Trust normally communicates the success of an application with the issue of a cheque and covering letter. If you do not receive a cheque in the post within five months you have not been successful.

If you have not been successful, unless your project changes significantly, there is no benefit in reapplying. Our funding rationale will not change – so please do not reapply.

Please note:

  • We do not accept applications by email.
  • We do not have an application form.
  • We do not notify unsuccessful applicants.
  • We do not provide feedback or details as to why applications are unsuccessful.
