The Beit Trust 

Type of project:  In the last five years, we have funded projects including hospitals, clinics, care homes, schools and libraries. We have supported over a hundred Beit Scholars at universities in the UK and South Africa, as well as regional training for surgeons from Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi. Over £1.5 million was made available in 2020 for new projects, mostly infrastructural. In addition, Trustees customarily allocate over £1 million to long-term recurrent grants, for academic and medical scholarships and bursaries, student hardship relief, library books, school computers and contingency support.

Location:  Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi

Eligibility: Established, independent institutions, in particular schools, hospitals and health centres may apply. Government organisations and start-ups are rarely funded.

Grant size: up to £50,000. Applications close to or above this will very rarely succeed. Running costs are not funded.

Closing date: 31 May
