FUND:

The Harry Payne Fund

The Harry Payne Fund was founded in 1939 (as the Harry Payne Trust) by Harry Payne, a Birmingham businessman. He was a man of strong faith – a pacifist who spent some years in prison in the first world war. His business was one of the early models of co-partnership and profit sharing. He had a particular interest in helping the disadvantaged and in helping the smaller causes where a modest donation can be seen to make a difference. The current members of the selection panel try to follow these principles in their grant making decisions. We therefore restrict the giving to organisations with an income of less than £500,000.

The panel meets four times a year, it is suggested if applicants are concerned about the timing of submitting an application to contact the HoECF grants team on 024 7688 3297.
