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.
Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum
In 2012 the Summerfield Charitable Trust paid an additional grant of £375,000 to Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum. This was the second tranche of a special one-off grant of £750,000 awarded in 2009 for the major redevelopment project in Clarence Street, Cheltenham. The refurbished art gallery and museum has been renamed THE WILSON, and re-opened on 5th October 2013. It includes a new Summerfield Gallery. Read more
