There are a number of Minor Trusts which are administered by Exeter Cathedral. These are almost all restricted to clergy or their dependents, or choristers at the Cathedral. The Trusts and a brief description of the terms under which they are able to support grant applications are listed below.
Please note that none of the trusts are very large, and we only distribute the income generated each year. Applications for each of the trusts are made usually in May each year and are considered by the Chapter, whose members are the Trustees, in their July meeting.
The successful applications will be contacted shortly afterwards. Once the award has been made it must be drawn down by August the following year or it is lost.
