We found writing a 10 page application was quite challenging, as we wanted to use all the space to maximum effect, but it takes a while to draft a good 10 pages. Once we had the application we got great feedback and had a really good discussion with trustees.

Grant Writer

Our experience with the Joffe Charitable Trust was excellent. Following an initial LOI, we enjoyed a very informative and transparent talk with the director and formed a much better understanding of how any potential support from the Trust could magnify and strengthen our work.
A very transparent, friendly and informative process .

Joffe is very thoughtful about the whole ecosystem, understands that it can play a catalytic role in getting good ideas off the ground but don't have the scale themselves. They can help organisations demonstrate impact and then access larger grants

I think with Joffe there is a significant (and welcome) focus on collaboration and networks. They - like us - realise that you usually can't bring about positive change in isolation, so working alongside partners and identifying areas for collaboration is critical. So my advice would be to identify how you can complement the existing Joffe network.

Reviewer UK586 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2018

Focus not on service delivery but on what the change you want to see in the world is. Be clear about the role of your key individuals in achieving this. Give a very clear timescale for the grant (usually one year, conceivable second year extension). Explain how this fits with the wider sector.

A really committed funder, the best I've seen. Flexible, adaptive, understands real challenges of organisations and is willing to go where no other funder has gone yet. You couldn't ask for a better partner.

I believe the Joffe Trust likes to be involved during proposal development, rather than simply being sent a proposal. Dialogue is therefore crucial.
