This charity exists “for the benefit of persons of either sex who are, or have been, engaged in evangelistic work, including retired missionaries or missionaries still engaged as such or continuing Christian workers”.
Under this description, grants are awarded to individuals towards their personal living expenses in undertaking Christian outreach projects, for periods of training for Christian ministry and outreach and to retired persons whose lives have included Christian evangelistic work. Under the terms of its original endowment, the trust is only permitted to support Christian workers from Protestant denominations.

The trustees like to see that applicants are making best efforts to receive funding from all possible sources. It should be noted that declaring your applications to other sources of funding, and any grants your have received, will not prejudice your chances of being awarded a grant by the trust.
