The January meeting was a very busy one with 27 applications for the David Gibbons Foundation and 22 for the Gibbons Family Trust. From these the Trustees awarded grants of £29,500 from DGF and £20,135 from GFT. 4 applications were moved from 1 Trust to the other (applications that fitted the criteria of both Trusts) to maximise the amount of income available to distribute.
The largest grant awarded was £3,000 to a children’s centre in Devon, and the smallest grant was £200 to an individual for College equipment.
GFT made 2 grants totalling £4,685 to Thanet and 2 grants worth £3,500 to East Devon. DGF awarded 5 grants worth £5,000 to East Devon organisation or individuals.
