The NINEVEH Charitable Trust (RCN 256025, registered 1968) supports a broad range of UK-based projects and activities of benefit to the General Public, with an emphasis on promoting a better understanding of the environment and countryside, whilst facilitating improved access, education and research.
Since our objectives are so broadly based, we are interested in interpreting them as creatively as we can. But outreach and amplification will be inherent in the proposals we approve. Our Trust funds are soundly invested, giving us full scope to support projects meeting the objectives of the Trust through the distribution of our annual income. Projects receiving capital support will also be considered.
The Trust’s Objectives were first set out by the Founders in 1968 and then modified by a Deed of Declaration in 1992. They promote:-
- The health, welfare and education of the general public
- The study and appreciation of agriculture, horticulture, silviculture and land and estate management
- The study and appreciation of ecology & land conservation, and
- The study and appreciation of forms of agricultural practice or land management that would encourage the preservation of the countryside.
In furtherance of which the Trustees are to make payments to or for the benefit of any person or charitable body whose legally charitable objects include any of the objects aforesaid.
Charitable Funding proposals should address the objectives of the Nineveh Charitable Trust (“supports a broad range of UK-based projects and activities of benefit to the General Public”) but other aims may receive consideration, guided by the Trustees’ views on what Professor and Mrs James would have supported.
An application for charitable funding need be no longer than 2 pages (single sided):
- We prefer to pay grants to UK registered charities or Community Interest Companies.
- But individual applicants may be considered if the outcome benefits are clearly defined
