The Beckwith Trust was set up under the will of the late Constance Elizabeth Beckwith.  The Trust is for the benefit of persons resident in, or who are, or have been, educated in the parishes of Easingwold and Husthwaite.  There are nine clauses of possible ways of applying but they are all basically educational, and beneficiaries have to prove the “need”.

Families wishing to apply for a grant of any amount should write to apply directly to the Beckwith Fund (contact details below), requesting Beckwith Trust funding to assist with making payments for the educational trip/exchange in question using the application form (available on the website), outlining details of the event, with dates and costs, and indicating their reasons/need for making the request.  The bid will be considered at the next available committee meeting.  Where the request is for funding for a trip before the next committee meeting, the request will be forwarded to the head teacher to make a decision  as to whether a sum is to be allocated to the student in question, and how much that sum should be.
