How we work

We identify new grantees through recommendations and fieldwork. Our programme officers evaluate new organisations and submit recommendations to the Trustees, who make the final decisions on grant allocations.

Only a few of our grants are earmarked for specific projects. We believe that donors can best encourage innovation and imagination if they allow grantees to develop their own ideas.

We are politically non-partisan, and expect the same of our partners.

As a registered charity we can only support activities that can be considered as charitable according to the law of England and Wales (Charities Act 2006). For more information, please consult the website of the Charity Commission.
