Welcome to the Summerfield Charitable Trust
The Summerfield Charitable Trust was established by Ronald Summerfield, a Cheltenham antique dealer, shortly before his death in 1989.
During 2012 we donated £413,142 to a wide variety of good causes throughout Gloucestershire. We paid a total of 86 grants ranging from small grants of £500, to larger grants of over £20,000. The average grant payment was £4,800.
We also paid an additional grant £375,000 to Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum. This was the second tranche of a special one-off grant of £750,000 awarded in 2009 to the Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum for the major redevelopment it is undergoing. It is due to re-open in October 2013 and will include a Summerfield Gallery. Read more about the history of Ronald Summerfield and Cheltenham Art Gallery Museum on our News page.
