Beat the deadline for Baylis Trust grant applications
The deadline is drawing near for applications for the next round of grants from the Louis Baylis ( Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust.

The trust owns Advertiser publisher Baylis Media Ltd and receives at least 80 per cent of the company’s profits.

It in turn uses these to help fund charities, community groups and good causes in Maidenhead and the surrounding area.

The trustees meet twice a year - in June and December - to discuss grant applications. The next meeting is at the end of June and the deadline for applications is Friday, June 13.

Only organisations should apply as the trust does not give grants directly to individuals.

The funding of the trust by the newspaper is unique in the world of the local press.

Ownership of the company was transferred to the trust more than 50 years ago in 1962 by proprietor Louis Baylis.

And since then the trust has poured millions of pounds into our community, allowing hundreds of organisations and charities to improve the lives of thousands of people.

So, every time you buy a copy of the Advertiser not only are you getting all the latest news, you are helping to fund good causes in our community.

And if you have a business that advertises with us you are, through the paper and the Trust, helping to make a huge positive difference in your community.

Visit here for an application form and here to find out Why the Advertiser is Special.
