Ford Britain Trust
Working with our local communities to sow the seeds of change.

We are committed to supporting the communities we work and live in. That’s why we created the Ford Britain Trust in April 1975 to help fund the education and advancement of our neighbours.
 We pay special attention to projects focusing on education, environment, children, the disabled, youth activities and projects that provide clear benefits to the local communities close to our UK locations. The Ford Britain Trust particularly encourages applications from Ford employees, but is open to all, provided that the qualifying organisations meet our selection criteria.
There are two types of grants to apply for: 
  • Small grants for amounts up to £250, available four times each year.
  • Large grants for amounts over £250 and usually up to a maximum of £3,000. Large grants are considered by the Trustees twice a year.
