Our small grants support member collaboration within the INTO family
TAP-INTO aims to build the capacity of our members through knowledge sharing. These small grants run in rounds throughout the year.
It’s all about commonality, shared learning and bringing trusts together. Past TAP-INTO grants have connected Nelson Island in Trinidad with expertise from Scotland to advise on the island’s development as a visitor attraction.
We have supported Australian National Trusts in the development of a commercial strategy. And explored the feasibility of a working holidays programme at a trust in the remote South Atlantic.
TAP-INTO is made possible thanks to the generous support of The Helen Hamlyn Trust.
First year of TAP-INTO
We have just awarded a new round of TAP-INTO small grants.
Building on the success of our Incubator programme, in November 2020 we offered micro-grants of up to £1000 to INTO members. Developing knowledge shared on the Incubator, we are supporting members seeking to develop their operations in one of four key categories outlined below.
Our next call for proposals will be made in early 2021.
