Thank you for visiting the Toy Trust funding application page

If you are a charity and are intending to apply for funding, please note that any new applications are now not being accepted before at least April 2019.

Please see a summary of our application criteria below to which each request is evaluated against.

All applications should:

Be supported by a registered Charity number

Be in support of disadvantaged children aged below 13 years

Have supporting up to date financial accounts

Be in support of children and projects regardless of faith, sex or disability

The applicants accounts must show a ratio of administration and overhead to income of less than 30%

The applicants accounts must have unrestricted net assets of not more than £200,000 or of less than one year’s income

Should the applicant not provide a set of accounts by the time the applications are submitted to the committee for approval that application will be declined.

Applications are accepted from organisations based in the UK and Ireland but applications will also be considered from organisations around the world who have a UK based office.

Successful applicants cannot reapply for funding for 2 years. This in turn will allow the Toy Trust to distribute funds fairly given the large volume of applications we receive.

 The Toy Trust reserves the right, when funds are available, to make a larger and longer commitment for special projects.
