SMALL GRANTS AVAILABLE

SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF CIRENCESTER & DISTRICT – DOROTHY MINNIS TRUST (Registered charity number 281078).

The Dorothy Minnis Trust is a charity which was established in 1980 with a legacy from a member of Soroptimist International Cirencester & District.

The charity is run and administered by members of SI Cirencester and each year provides small grants to individuals, organisations and other charities in Cirencester and the surrounding area.

The charity objectives are: donations to other charities; gifts or grants of money for the relief of poverty; bursaries for training or retraining and financial assistance for charitable projects of service to the community.

Typically the trustees meet three times each year to consider applications which are open to all individuals, local groups, organisations and charities.

Members of SI Cirencester & District are very proud of the amount of support the charity has been able to provide locally over many years.

Once again, the Minnis Trust is offering small grants to local and national charities and to help individuals with education, training and re-training.
