Welcome to the Garfield Weston Foundation


Welcome to the Garfield Weston Foundation.  We are 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, our 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.

We make grants across the UK to organisations in the following categories:

            Arts                           Education         
            Youth                        Health
            Community               Environment
            Religion                    Welfare

Mindful of the challenging economic climate, the Foundation has continued to grow its donations (giving almost £50 million in the last year) and the 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.

This site contains everything you need to know about us - our history, case studies of just a few of the charities and projects we have supported, information for our grant holders, and, crucially, how to apply to us for funding.  We hope you find this useful.
