The current donation policy of the Sir Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust

The Trust has continued the Sir Peter legacy of supporting his six named charities on an annual basis. In addition to that, thanks to the generous Sir Peter estate donation to the Trust, we have been able to support a further 350 different charities over the last 18 years.

However, we are now reaching a point where the estate funds are reaching their end. We will endeavour to continue the Trust's work of supporting as many charities as we can with smaller awards to fund their immediate needs for the welfare of equines and equine therapy. Applications for those awards should be received by the end of each January, May, August and November. We anticipate our funding will allow us to continue our work in this area through 2024 and 2025.

In addition, as the estate funds are nearing their end, we look to maximise the benefit and legacy of The Sir Peter O’Sulleven Trust. We are inviting charities who may have a 'special project' to apply one last time for a larger special funding grant. These applications should reflect a significant and permanent legacy to Sir Peter. We would like to receive applications for this special legacy grant by August 30th 2024.
