Availability of Funding

In accordance with the Gambling Act 2003, First Sovereign Trust Limited receives applications for grants on a continuous basis. These are presented to the Net Proceeds Committee at the monthly meeting closest to the date at which the complete, signed original Grant Request has been received at our office.  The Net Proceeds Committee is responsible for assessing applications for the funds that are raised from our gaming machine venues.

Our criteria, methods, systems and policies used to consider the distribution of net proceeds are reviewed regularly. The Directors met on the 24th of May 2017 and the latest amendments to the Net Proceeds Policy have been updated on this website.

Applications must be completed in accordance with the standard First Sovereign Trust Limited’s online application form via our online Grants Portal.

Please check your Eligibility and read our Grant Guidelines and What We Fund for assistance when applying for a grant.
