Welcome to the James
Pantyfedwen Foundation

The Foundation is currently administered by a Scheme agreed with the Charity Commissioners in April 1998. The objects of the Foundation as set out in the Scheme are as follows:

“ ... the advancement, encouragement and promotion of religion, education, the Arts and agriculture and other charitable purposes for the benefit of Welsh persons primarily in Wales”.

In practice these objects have been interpreted to include support for:

  1. registered charities
  2. students undertaking postgraduate study, especially research work, and students training for the Christian Ministry
  3. special projects of an ecumenical nature
  4. Sunday Schools
  5. Eisteddfodau
  6. individual churches for repair/improvement of the fabric

Guidelines for each of the categories listed above can be located on the website in pdf format. You are advised to read these carefully in order to determine whether or not your project comes within the Foundation's terms of reference. You are also invited to download the appropriate application form. With one exception these are all available in pdf format on the website. APPLICATION FORMS FOR CHURCH REPAIRS AND IMPROVEMENTS CANNOT BE DOWNLOADED FROM THE WEBSITE BECAUSE THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR INDIVIDUAL CHURCHES WILL VARY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DENOMINATION OF THE CHURCH. TO OBTAIN A CHURCH FORM PLEASE CONTACT THE FOUNDATION OFFICE.
