About The Trust

The Chrysalis Trust was established in 2009.
It makes grants to UK registered charities providing public benefit.
The Trust supports local projects in the North East of England only, national organisations providing benefit across the UK, as well as, international charities registered in the UK.
The trust is able to provide support for both capital projects and core funding with 'one off' donations.
It is unable to support any project which should or could be funded by a statutory body.


All grants are made at the discretion of the trustees without discrimination on any grounds. Amongst other things, the trustees will consider the following criteria:

-The ability of the applicant to demonstrate that they provide public benefit
-The impact the grant will make
-The number of people the grant will benefit and for how long
-How any shortfall in funding for the project will be raised
-The time scale for the project
