The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust, to promote and support charities in the United Kingdom working in agriculture, rural development and insurance.
The Trust focuses on providing funding to larger initiatives, which would have a significant impact on the rural community. The Trustees are particularly interested in initiatives in the areas of education of young people in rural areas and relief of poverty within rural areas.
In the last ten years The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust has donated almost £3m to fund education and social welfare projects in towns and villages across the UK.
The objectives of The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust are to promote, facilitate and support such purposes as are exclusively charitable according to the laws of England and Wales in the areas of agriculture, rural development and insurance in the United Kingdom and in particular.
Donations vary from £1,000 to £50,000. However, the Trustees’ funding is limited, therefore the larger donations are used to support organisations which have a significant impact on rural communities at a national level
