The Beaverbrook Foundation

Health & Social Care Heritage Religion

The Beaverbrook Foundation supports a variety of causes including:

  • relieve sickness and provide support for those in poor health and old age;
  • promote education, including the provision of scholarship awards, maintenance allowances or grants
  • advance the education of the public regarding the first Lord Beaverbrook
  • advance the Christian faith for the benefit of the public
  • further other charitable purposes

Grants are typically under £5,000 and can be made for capital expenditure, i.e. to acquire or upgrade physical assets such as buildings, fixtures and fittings, machinery, furniture and other equipment; for revenue/running costs; and for special projects. The Trustees will not normally consider grants to cover expenditure which has already been incurred or committed.

The Trustees promote the concept of match funding, and may make a payment conditional upon the applicant obtaining the remaining funding from other sources.

Only UK registered charities can apply.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
