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 and distress through a focus on three key areas:

  • Promoting the advancement and accessibility of music and the arts, and in particular to support organisations helping young musicians, singers and dancers from disadvantaged backgrounds;
  • Helping children and young people under 25 years and in the greatest need to achieve well and enjoy fulfilling lives;
  • Supporting London-based charities and other non-profit organisations to campaign for and provide affordable accommodation for key workers.

What We Fund

Disadvantaged Children

We know that children and young people in the UK, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged, face enormous barriers to achieving their potential.

Music and Performing Arts Education

Music, dance, singing (the performing arts in short) are life-enhancing activities, benefiting individuals and society more generally.

Affordable Housing

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