Three Monkies Trust



About the Three Monkies Trust

Three Monkies Trust (charity number 1164342) supports charitable activity by providing small grants to charities and other non-profit organisations operating primarily in England.

Formed in 2015, Three Monkies welcomes applications from small to medium-sized charities with an annual income of less than £500,000 or for specific activities within programmes of this size in larger charities.

The Trustees are committed to enhancing life chances and alleviating disadvantage for children and young people under 25 years and in the greatest need.  In seeking to provide opportunities to achieve well and enjoy fulfilling lives, Three Monkies focuses on promoting the advancement and accessibility of music and the arts, in particular supporting organisations helping young musicians, singers and dancers from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Separately the charity supports London-based charities and other non-profit organisations to campaign for and provide affordable accommodation for key workers.

Affordable, decent housing is a pre-requisite to good physical and mental health and wellbeing.
