Special Purpose Grants

In line with JGW Patterson Foundation policy of flexibility in funding, small grants (< £10k) may be awarded for purposes which do not easily fit into any other category of funding. Such grants would be subject to approval by the Trustees and be seen as “one off” awards. Small grants have been made to Hospices for specific requirements relating to the relief of Cancer patients.

It is unlikely that the Foundation would support bids for buildings or refurbishment, equipment, travel expenses except where linked to a defined project or fellowship, infrastructure costs of an academic unit (e.g. secretarial support) or programme grant funding The Foundation will not pay the “administrative” on costs of the host institution as it is a registered charity (this is sometimes known as Full Economic Costs). Salary increases in line with national pay awards will be honoured.
