The VOLANT Charitable Trust

This Trust was set up by the author J.K. Rowling to support charitable causes.

The Trust has two broad areas of funding:

How to Make an Application

For projects based in Scotland only, with funding requests of up to and including £10,000 per annum, applications are dealt with by our appointed agents, Foundation Scotland. For further information and to make an application click here. Please do not submit an application to Foundation Scotland if you are currently receiving any funding directly from Volant, or have an application pending.

All other requests for funding in Scotland and in the rest of the UK are dealt with by downloading an application form.

Complete and return the application form, plus any supporting materials by post, to the address opposite. Applications should not be hand delivered. If an application is hand delivered, management at Mail Boxes are not in a position to discuss applications and will not be expected to provide any form of receipt.

Please note that on receipt of a completed Volant application form the Trust will send an acknowledgement by email. The email address is not a correspondence address and due to the very large number of applications the Trust is now receiving, there will be no further communications from the Trust unless your application is successful.

Given the very large number of applications the Trust is currently receiving, we regret that we cannot enter into any communication regarding general enquiries.


How the Trust Works

The Trustees meet twice a year, in March and September, to consider applications and allocate funds. If your application is successful, you will be notified immediately after the meeting has taken place. The next deadline is for the meeting in September 2015 and is Friday 26th June 2015.
