The Linder Foundation distributes up to £500,000 per year to UK registered charities and exempt charities working in six distinct areas:
Research into any branch of medicine is considered with a preference for those relating to surgery. Projects can range from basic research to clinical research but those with an emphasis on applied or translational study (using basic findings to create new therapies, procedures or diagnostics) will be prioritised.
Hospices and Respite Care
Applications from charitable institutions that focus on projects providing palliative care for the chronically ill, terminally ill or seriously ill are eligible. Priority will be given to those focussing on relieving pain, provision of emotional/spiritual sustenance and temporary support to caregivers.
Schemes that aim to improve the mental health and development of young people, particularly teenagers, young offenders and those in care through educational, cultural, sporting or other activities are of interest. Particular consideration will be given to projects enhancing self-confidence, team-working skills and future employability.
Charitable institutions that require funding for projects to address the harmful effects of human activity on the environment will be considered especially those seeking to protect or enhance the natural world for the benefit of both humans and the wider environment.
The Foundation supports musical tuition and concerts, concentrating on youth, progress and innovation.
Medical Electives (by invitation only)
Projects providing a unique opportunity for medical students to experience healthcare in an unfamiliar setting will be considered. Typically these are in low resource settings although specialist centres relevant to the student’s future are also encouraged. Overseas placements are prioritised.
The Foundation seeks to maximise its impact by choosing to fund projects where it can be a major stakeholder within institutions.
Deadline: Monday 30 November 2020, midnight
