The Rotary Club of Gloucester Trust Fund for Young People

In 1988, the Rotary Club of Gloucester set up a trust fund with the aim, over time, of providing funding to young peoople in Gloucester to help them with projects that would develoop them as individuals.

Any one between the ages of 12 to 22, living or working in Gloucester and its immediate surrounding area, is eligible to apply for a grant.

The grant could be made for an activity that would develop you as a person, for example see Tom Williams' experiences below.

The grant could be used to assist you in continuing your education or vocation when your family circumstances have put a break on your ambitions.

The Trustees of the Fund will review all applications that are supported by the details of the project, activity or course and the recognised organisation that is behind it.

This type of Trust Fund has been successful in a number of countries, to such an extent that people like you have been able to do things that they would have thought beyond their capabilities.

Is there something you particularly want to achieve but don't have the funds to do it? If so, the Rotary Trust Fund might just be the help you are looking for.
