We appreciate that charities like to know the outcome of our trustee meetings as soon as possible.

We therefore publish a list of successful applicants as soon as possible after the meeting.

Grants Awarded

If your charity is not on this list, unfortunately you have not been awarded a grant.

All applicants will be contacted by email or letter, whether successful or not.

Please do not email us to find out how your application is progressing – we do not have the resources to deal with these requests.  We aim to let everyone know the outcome of our meetings within four weeks of the meeting.


Please send a written acknowledgement when you receive a grant cheque to our accountants:

John Duffy
Port of Liverpool Building
L3 1NW

We are happy to have any donation acknowledged on your charity’s publicity materials, although this is not necessary. Please credit the trust as:
The Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust.

Please don’t send annual reports or updates – unfortunately we don’t have the resources to read these.

Please email invitations to see your charity’s work – we will do our best to attend.
