Funding for Rural Community and Education Projects (UK)

Grants are available through the NFU Mutual Charitable Trust for initiatives that support charities in the UK working in agriculture and rural development. The Trustees are particularly interested in initiatives that:

  • Advance the education of the public using research and dissemination of information about agriculture
  • Advance the education of young people within rural areas
  • Relieve poverty within rural areas
  • Promote the benefit and social welfare of rural community inhabitants by associating with the inhabitants and local authorities, voluntary and other organisations to advance education and leisure.
  • Promote research into agriculture associated activities
  • Advance the education of the public by means of research and dissemination of information in relation to insurance provided that the charity may also promote, facilitate and support any such other purposes as are exclusively charitable according to the laws of England and Wales

Grants are available for £1,000 - 50,000. Larger donations support organisations that significantly impact rural communities at a national level.

The next closing date for applications is the 4th October 2024.
