Reviewer UK464 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

Joffe Charitable Trust provided space for a very open and honest conversation about our plans and our organisation as a whole. So I would recommend having a good idea of what your priorities are as an organisation and being open to guidance and suggestions from the Trust on how to achieve them and how they can help.

Reviewer UK995 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2019

They are highly approachable and always up for a chat about a potential project. They take a lot of interest in the sector and have a wealth of knowledge and connections. I'd suggest having an open and frank conversation about the project - you're likely to get useful feedback and clarity on what will or won't work for the fund.

Pros

Consider how your application ties into the debate around tax justice, and how your aim to 'plug in' to the wider tax justice movement during the project.

Pros

Make sure you really understand what the trust wants and is trying to achieve, and whether you 'fit the bill'. It's better having a very honest conversation at the start.
