We do not have a date set for the next Trustee meeting, however all charities are welcome to continue to submit applications, and these will be considered when the next meeting eventually takes place. 

Please ensure you check this page regularly for updates regarding deadlines as these will be on here as soon as we have them. 

The George A. Moore Foundation was founded in 1970 by Mr. Moore, initially as a welfare fund for the hundreds of people employed in his factories. This well-respected grant making charity continues to operate from the monies which were privately invested by the Moore family.

Over the years the charity has provided much needed support to thousands of charitable organisations, both large and small, operating in many different spheres – from education to health and armed forces to community and sporting projects.

Grants are now provided exclusively to registered charities based in the North and West Yorkshire area, supporting our local community.
