Sheffield Town Trust
The Sheffield Town Trust was established in 1297 and is one of the oldest charities in England. The Trust has a disposable income of about £400,000 per year which is distributed ‘for charitable and public purposes’ for the benefit of Sheffield and its inhabitants.
The Trust supports a wide range of groups and organisations some on an annual basis but most as one-off grants. The Town Trustees meet four times a year in February, May, August and November to discuss the many applications received and are able to support about 140 charities, groups and organisations each year.
The Town Trust also uses its funds to help protect and safeguard the city’s heritage and environment. In recent years substantial grants have been awarded for the regeneration of the Botanical Gardens, the development of the Five Weirs Walk, and the restoration of Kelham Island Industrial Museum.
