Frequently Asked Questions
Who can apply?
We make grants for legally charitable work that an organisations constitution allows it to do.

Please telephone us to discuss your request. An appointment will be made to visit our office to discuss your request in more detail and lead you through the grant application process.
If you are currently a grant holder, please get in touch with your usual contact at the Mustique Charitable Trust.

Whatever you feel you need for the work you want to supported but see page five for guidance.
Do you make grants for more than one year?
Grants may be for one year or longer but generally not more than three years
When can my organisation apply for a grant?
You are welcome to submit an application at any time. However, we will only deal with one application per organisation at a time.
How long will I have to wait for a decision?
The Mustique Charitable Trust will get back to you, aiming to acknowledge your first stage application within four weeks of receiving it. Within two months we will either suggest taking it to the second stage or decline to support it.
If you are invited to proceed to the second stage we will ask you for some additional information that will depend on what you have already told us and the size and complexity of the work you would like us to support. We will also send our Trust Administrator to visit your project to agree success criteria and monitoring, evaluation and impact reporting procedures. At this point you will be given a decision date by the Board of Trustees.
If my application is refused at either the outline or final stage may I apply again?
You may come back to us with a revised proposal or a new idea.
What happens if my application is successful?
You will be expected to comply with our standard terms and conditions. Occasionally the nature of a grant can involve special terms and conditions.
