Invitation to Apply

The Tarn Moor Estate provides grants mainly to organisations and groups with proposals of benefit to Skipton residents. Applications may be made for capital grants of all sizes and for grants for educational purposes.

Grants are only approved for applications of benefit to Skipton residents.  See the map of the area of benefit below – if you live within the black boundary shown on the map (the parish boundary of Skipton), or if your organisation serves or benefits principally the residents of this area, you are eligible to apply for a grant:


Grants provided recently include a fund of seed money provided to Skipton Camerata for setting up a concert season targeted at young people, funding towards re-surfacing the all-weather pitch at Sandyland sports centre, and matched funding towards the cost of tents for Skipton Guides.

The charity has links with the Sylvester Petyt Trust in order to help provide funds for Skipton children and school-leavers for educational purposes.
