Application for Support

Application for Support from the Purley Overseas Trust (POST)

Registered Charity Number: 291140

POST’s mission is to help the poorest people of the world to help themselves to a better standard of living by funding small-scale self-generating projects. Projects that we have helped to fund in the past have mostly been in the categories of agriculture, health/sociology and education and the amounts of the support have varied but have usually been in the range of £200 – £1,000.

PLEASE NOTE: We are a small volunteer organisation with limited funds. We receive many applications for support, and cannot reply to each of them individually. But we do consider each application we receive, and we will contact you if we feel we can offer you support. Unfortunately, we cannot support any application that does not meet the following criteria:

  1. We only support small organisations with annual turnover less than approx. £20,000 GBP or $30,000 USD

  2. We cannot support disaster relief appeals. There are other charities better placed than us to do this.

  3. You must supply all information requested, including details of annual turnover, recent accounts, etc.


If you think that your project and organisation meets these criteria, please complete the Support Application Form below:
