Our Grants Programme

ECO GRANTS

Part of the mission of The Wisdom Trust and one of our key charitable objectives is to help our members reduce their personal carbon footprint at home. Firstly, we do this by educating members about hundreds of simple things they can do themselves (our eco tips) and secondly, we offer a grants scheme to help them fund projects at home which help them to save energy (and hopefully, save money as well).

As one of our members - a friend of The Wisdom Trust - you build up and add value to your personal Wisdom Trust Charity/Grant fund every time you log in and use the website's built-in education programmes. You can also add to its value when you introduce friends and family or shop online.

There are several ways you can then use the value of your fund to make a difference, and one of these ways is to apply for a Wisdom Trust eco grant.

Regular, committed members can use some or all the value of your Wisdom Trust Charity/Grant Fund to apply for an Eco Grant. This can be used to help offset the cost of items like solar panels or boiler controls etc. Items for which we will allow grants must be approved by The Carbon Trust, for their advertised purpose.

Once an application for an Eco Grant has been processed The Wisdom Trust will seek to locate a local, fully-accredited supplier of the required item. If the grant is for less than 100% of the total cost, we will advise the member of the balance that is due, so they can submit the difference to us prior to installation. Once the item is paid for in full, we will then arrange delivery and installation.

To apply for an Eco Grant, the value of your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund must exceed £100 and you must be active at that time (i.e. with at least 200 FC's this month or last month). To start the process, use the link from within the [Gold Money Options] page from the [Resources] menu, when you're logged in.


EDUCATIONAL GRANTS

As one of our members - a friend of The Wisdom Trust - you build up and add value to your personal Wisdom Trust Charity/Grant fund every time you log in and use the website's built-in education programmes. You can also add to its value when you introduce friends and family or shop online.

There are several ways you can then use the value of your fund to make a difference, and one of these ways is to apply for a Wisdom Trust education grant. We believe student poverty, (especially poverty amongst former students with huge outstanding loans), is going to become even more of an issue over the next ten years than it is today. By providing these Education Grants, The Wisdom Trust is doing its bit to help relieve this situation a little.

If you're a full-time student (or have been recently - within the last 5 years) you can use some or all the value of your Wisdom Trust Charity/Grant Fund to apply for an Education Grant to help offset the costs of your further education (university tuition fees etc.). Once an application for an Education Grant has been approved, The Wisdom Trust will contact the member for information about their course and loan provider etc.

To apply for an Education Grant, the value of your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund must exceed £100 and you must be active at that time (i.e. with at least 200 FC's this month or last month). To start the process, use the link from within the [Gold Money Options] page from the [Resources] menu, when you're logged in.
