The International National Trusts Organisation (INTO)


Our small grants support member collaboration within the INTO family

Current Opportunities

For our next TAP-INTO call, INTO will fund the exchange of best practice between our member organisations all around the world.

Grants of up to £2,000 will support INTO members to develop work that is inspired by collaboration within the INTO family of National Trusts. Projects can focus on any activity relevant to the work of heritage trusts, but must be inspired by your peers overseas. Maybe you have come into contact with our work as part of an INTO Project, joined an inspiring webinar, or are looking to build on discussions that began at INTO Online 2021.

We want to hear how contact with other INTO members has inspired your plans for the future, and we will prioritise those applications that can really demonstrate where this is the case.

You can apply in partnership with another organisation or on your own, but at least one organisation involved in every project must be a full member of INTO. Check your organisation’s status on our member page.

Applications are open from 1 June and close 23 July 2021. General eligibility requirements are outlined below.

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.
