Alderman Newton's Educational Foundation is one of several charities established in various towns by Alderman Gabriel Newton of Leicester by a deed dated 15 March 1760. The Foundation has an annual income which is normally allocated to specific parishes on request throughout the year. Lubenham is fortunate to be one of those parishes.

Applications are invited from residents aged between 13 and 25 who need funding towards their books, equipment or items that help them to undertake their course or an apprenticeship. Applicants will be required to produce with their application written confirmation from their university, or other educational establishment, or employer that they have commenced the course and an indication as to whether or not the items they wish to finance with a grant are essential to their studies or desirable. Applicants may also be required to provide evidence of income. A successful applicant will be advised of the amount of grant and will be reimbursed up to this amount after producing receipts for the books/equipment/materials etc. specified in the application. Grants awarded are generally under £300. Small grants may also be awarded to primary schools serving Lubenham Parish.
