We are a grant giving charity that derives its income from the properties and funds of two charities, the Guild and College estates, whose origins go back to the 13th Century. Read more about our history.
We usually award over £2million each year to support charities, organisations, projects, events, groups, clubs, schools and individuals across Stratford-upon-Avon to do incredible things for our community.
From small grants of up to £1000 to larger and multi-year grants, we fund, engage and empower people to realise their aspirations and make a difference. We prioritise our grants to maximise our impact in the town.
We run a wide range of community development activities and events throughout the year to build relationships and put us at the heart of our town to make sure we are responding to local need. We also hold a number of events just for our members bringing them closer to our work and giving them an opportunity to meet us and each other. If you’d like to join us as a member, it’s free and only takes a moment.
