  • June / July
  • October / November

Charities should make only one application per year.


If you apply online, all applications will be acknowledged automatically on receipt.

Every applicant will be notified of the Foundation’s decision but you may have to wait several months.

Please be aware that the Foundation always receives more applications than it is able to fund.

What we do

The aim of the trustees is to support charities in the fields of medical research, education and the arts. In addition, social welfare is supported, especially work known to the trustees. If charities work locally, priority is given to those in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. We support registered charities, including Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) and those correctly registered as charities in their own countries.


The Foundation does not make donations to individuals or to organisations that are not registered charities. The Foundation does not support capital appeals unless of personal significance to the trustees.
