The Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded, grant-making trust which has been supporting charities across the UK for over 50 years. From small community groups to large national institutions, their aim is to support organisations that have effective solutions to helping those most in need.
The Foundation supports a broad range of organisations and activities that share a commitment to making a positive impact to the lives of the communities in which they work, and that are driven by a desire to achieve excellence.
They make grants across the UK to organisations in the following categories: Arts, education, youth, community, religion, health, environment and welfare.
Trustees are especially keen to see applications for core and project costs for charities delivering services directly to beneficiaries, especially in the welfare, youth and community fields, and also in regions of economic disadvantage.
Grants start from £1,000. There is no upper limit but the foundation will normally only fund 10% of a project’s total budget.
