Grants Policy

Lord Crewe’s Charity is a Christian Charity supporting Clergy, Education, and the Local Community. Our guiding values are Christian Stewardship and Responsible Benevolence.

Impactful and Relevant

We only operate closed grant programmes, working with selected organisations, including the dioceses of Durham and Newcastle, as well as Lincoln College, Oxford. We also provide direct grants to clergy in the two dioceses and to local community organisations in the parishes where we own land. We seek to maintain an awareness of where need lies amongst our beneficiaries and occasionally review the grants we offer to ensure that they remain relevant to current times and to optimise their impact.
