Welcome

The Trust was established in 1996 by the late Phyllis Mary (Mollie) Croysdale of Pickering, North Yorkshire. Mollie was a member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).

The Objects of the Charity are:

To further the religious and other charitable work of the Pickering and Hull Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends with special regard to the needs of the Kirkbymoorside Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends, the Malton Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends, the Pickering Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends, the Whitby Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends and the Bridlington Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends.

To benefit in any way any other charitable institutions or charitable objects as the Trustees may from time to time in their absolute discretion select.

The Trustees of the Mollie Croysdale Charitable Trust meet four times a year to consider grant applications. They distribute about £20,000 a year in grants to other charities.

Most grants are between about £300 and £1000 with the larger grants supporting Quaker witness, paticularly in the Pickering and Hull Area Quaker Meeting region.
