It’s Over! Application Process for 2019 RPMF Grants is now CLOSEDDecember 1, 2018
Following a record number of Applications, the application process for the 2019 RPMF Grants has now been closed. The process ran for 9 weeks and we hope that everyone that wanted to had the opportunity to apply for a grant. Unfortunately, anyone that did not apply this year shall have to wait until October of 2019 when the process shall open again for the 2019 RPMF Grants.
We received a massive 533 Applications which we shall now review and the Grants Committee shall get together shortly for another monster selection meeting, to review all applications and make some decisions. This meeting typically lasts for more than 8 hours.
Once we have made our selection for our Award winners for 2019, we shall inform all applicants by email as to whether they have been successful or not. I hope that you will understand that with so many applications it is more and more difficult each year to make these decisions and as a small Charity our funds are limited. Each year we try to help as many deserving cases as we can within our budget restrictions and we can only apologise if we are unable to help you this year, but we hope that you will apply again in the future.
Best of luck to all those that applied this year.
