1. Introduction.

Here at The Wisdom Trust, we’re very keen to encourage people to choose a more healthy diet and in particular to eat the right amount of fresh fruit and vegetables every day.

We do appreciate, however, that especially for families on low incomes, the additional costs associated with choosing healthier food options against just buying the cheaper ‘value’ or ‘economy’ ranges, can sometimes almost be a disincentive to eat more healthy food, even though everyone would be completely aware of the long-term health benefits of doing so, particularly with regard to young children.

Since one of the objectives of The Wisdom Trust is to help people live a more healthy lifestyle, we want to do what we can to help, so we have introduced special Wisdom Trust Social Grants.

Some 1.8 million children die each year as a result of diarrhoea - that's one unnecessary child death every 17.5 seconds.


2. The Wisdom Trust Grant Fund.

One of the privileges of becoming a Wisdom Trust member – a friend of The Wisdom Trust – is that you can build your entitlement to a special Wisdom Trust personal grant fund in your name. And one of the uses of this special grant fund is to apply for a Wisdom Trust Social Grant to help offset the extra costs of choosing more healthy food options.

Anyone, regardless of age, circumstances or even where they live in the world, as long as they’re a registered friend of The Wisdom Trust, can use some or all the value of their Wisdom Trust Grant Fund to apply for a Social Grant to help offset these additional costs so they and their family can change to a more healthy daily diet.

Your special Wisdom Trust grant fund starts at a value of zero when you first register. Then, from that point on, little by little, you can add value to your fund every time you log in and use the website's free built-in education programmes to earn credits (Fundraising Credits – or FC’s), or when you shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.


3. Spread The Word And Get Even More Benefit.

Furthermore, if you help us spread the word and introduce your friends, family, classmates and colleagues, primarily to help you support your own favourite charity or good cause with their votes, an added benefit is that your own personal Wisdom Trust grant fund accrues extra value for the credits (FC's) they earn through their use of our website and whenever they shop online or take advantage of any our special free offers.

This is because our website recognises the fact that you introduced them and that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to engage with those new members without you introducing them in the first place. So it’s almost like a special ongoing ‘thank-you’ to you for helping us spread the word.

Not only that, the bigger your own personal network or ‘family tree’ of friends and family grows, the more people will be helping build the value of your own Wisdom Trust grant fund.

So your fund will accrue extra value for the activity of your friends’ friends and family, the friends of your friends’ friends, and so on, down through at least eight generation of friends and family. In fact, your fund will grow every time anyone in your personal network logs in, uses the website’s built-in education programmes to earn credits, and when they shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.

There are several ways you can then use the value of your fund to make a difference, and, as we said just now, one of these ways is to apply for a Wisdom Trust social grant to help everyone – especially families on low-income – to afford the additional costs of making healthier food choices at the supermarket.

4. How Are Social Grant Applications Processed?

Once an application for a Social Grant has been processed The Wisdom Trust will email the member with a special Social Grant voucher made out for the value of their social grant. They can then take this to their local accredited shop (i.e. one that’s agreed to accept Wisdom Trust Social Grant vouchers) and exchange it for fresh fruit and vegetables (and other healthy food options as specified by The Wisdom Trust) up to the value of the voucher. Unfortunately, the store will not be able to give change against our vouchers if the full value is not used.

To apply for a Social Grant, the value of your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund must exceed £10 and you must be active at that time (i.e. with at least 200 FC's this month or last month). To start the process, use the link from within the [Gold Money Options] page from the [Members] menu, when you're logged in.
