What happens at the second stage?
We will write to you if your application progresses to the second stage, giving you more information about the second-stage process and telling you which member of Tudor’s staff will be working with you to develop your application and manage your grant, if one is made. Your grants manager will then get in touch to introduce themselves and discuss the next steps.
Discovering how best Tudor can help
At the second stage we want to identify the information we need to move your application forward and discover how best Tudor could support your organisation and its work. The assessment process usually involves a detailed telephone conversation or sometimes a visit, though unfortunately we can’t visit everyone. There are no forms to complete at the second stage.
Tudor considers all applications as quickly as possible. We aim to make a decision on most applications within three months of their progressing to the second stage, although in some circumstances we act more swiftly. Complex applications sometimes take longer to develop.
Trustees and staff meet every three weeks to consider applications. They will discuss your application in detail and will usually make an immediate decision on funding, although occasionally they may request further information or a visit if one has not already taken place.
The trustees’ decision
Your grants manager will write to you with the trustees’ decision. If we have made a grant this letter will include straightforward arrangements for its payment. We will also give you some guidance on how we would like you to report back on your progress during the life of your grant. You can find out more about our terms and conditions and about how we will ask you to keep us informed about your progress in the Information for grant holders section of our website. If the trustees decide not to make a grant we will explain why not.
