Guidelines for applicants

The Renishaw Charities Committee (RCC) receive many applications for financial support. To check the beneficiary organisation's eligibility for funding and to make an application, please review the following guidelines.

All applications must be in writing; please either email charities.committee@renishaw.com, write to The Renishaw Charities Committee, New Mills, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire GL12 8JR, or fill in the form below.

Beneficiary organisations are not required to have registered charitable status.

The RCC is especially interested in projects relating to:

  • Children and young people.
  • People with disabilities.
  • Health and fitness.
  • Lifelong learning.
  • Community and social development.
  • Sports and leisure.

Beneficiary organisations must:

  • Be located within and principally benefiting people who live within a 50 mile radius of Renishaw's headquarters near Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire.
  • Have not received funds from the RCC within the past 12 months (including beneficiaries of The Citizen newspaper's Wish Campaign).

Note: This can include local branches of national organisations with the condition that any donation is used within the geographical limits stated above.

Individual fund raising:

The RCC will support non-employees who are fundraising for organisation(s) that fulfil the above criteria, and who have not received funds from the RCC within the past 12 months (including beneficiaries of The Citizen newspaper's Wish Campaign). Cheques will be made payable to that organisation.

The RCC does not provide funding for projects that are wholly or partly considered to be personal development (e.g. sports sponsorship or educational/charitable expeditions), or if the applicant is seeking sponsorship to cover the costs of participating in an event.

The RCC will support its employees' fund raising activities for:

  • Organisations (including national and international organisations) that meet the RCC general criteria.
  • “Telethons”, e.g. Children In Need or Comic Relief.

Note: For the purpose of this guideline and at the RCC's discretion, the definition of Employee will also include anyone receiving a “Renishaw pension” or “death in service” benefits.

The RCC will support national or international disaster fund raising appeals when appropriate

Renishaw provides the RCC with separate funding to support disaster appeals. Such funds can be used to donate to general appeals or to organisations that provide assistance to disaster zones.

The RCC does not provide funding for:

  • Projects outside the geographical limitations noted above.
  • Charities or organisations seeking funds to redistribute to other charities.
  • Political organisations and campaigns.
  • Purchasing tables at charity fund raisers or boxes at sporting events, etc.
  • National/international organisations (unless supporting employees' fund raising activities).

Timescales:

The RCC meet in the middle of January, March, May, July, September and November to discuss recent applications. Please assume that if you haven't heard from the RCC within 3 months of your application that you were unsuccessful on this occasion.
