Tabhair - A Charitable Trust

Trust Guidelines

Grants are given to charitable organisations registered and working in the UK or Ireland that make requests that fall within our criteria for giving. We do not give grants to individuals or make general charitable contributions to other organisations.

Applications can be made for individual projects or core costs. Where core costs are requested, the maximum commitment considered would be 3 years.

All grant giving is informed by Tabhair’s commitment to support the disadvantaged and promote education, training and community action.

The Trust is interested in funding local and national work within the UK/ Ireland region

Grants will range in size, with most grants awarded being in the range of £500 - £5000

To make an application, please submit an initial enquiry on this website, or in writing to:
Tabhair, c/o Chiene and Tait, 61 Dublin Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6NL

We will acknowledge all applications but regret that we cannot enter into detailed communication about each application. We will contact you for more detailed information if we are in a position to take your application further.

The trustees meet twice a year to distribute the income of the charity. To process a successful application and make a grant usually takes between two and six months.

Subsequent applications can be made – but no more frequently than once per year.

All grants are made at the discretion of the trustees and their decisions are final.

An annual report is required from charities that are awarded a grant. The report should explain how the grant has been used and illustrate the difference it has made.
