About the Trust

Duveen logomark

The Duveen Trust was established in memory of Sir Geoffrey and Lady Elise Duveen with the intention of supporting projects where there is an outright benefit to society in the UK upon its completion.

The remit of the Trust is to support a piece of work in its entirety; or help projects of individual initiative by young people up to the age of 25 years old. The Trust has a grant potential of up to £15,000 per annum, which is allocated to those who meet our funding criteria and successfully complete our application process. All applications will be considered by the Trustees at their meetings held three times a year (usually March, June and November). Applicants will be notified whether a grant is being offered after the meetings.

Who we're looking for

The trust would like to consider:

  • Projects of individual initiative by young people where self-help alone has proved insufficient.
  • Projects where young people have used their initiative to raise funds themselves.
  • Organisations administering projects aiming to develop individual initiative by young people.
  • Applications for educational assistance to enable applicants to work in community projects specialising in the social education of young people.
  • Grants towards finite projects or individuals administering them.
  • Applications that benefit UK society.
