The Foundation will normally apply most of its annual income to charitable causes selected by its trustees. Grant-making decisions will aim to honour the family’s charitable efforts of the past, and inspire positive impact going forward.
From time to time, the Foundation may identify new focus areas and will conduct research and due diligence to identify the charities best placed to make a difference. Those identified will be invited to apply for support. Upon invitation, potential grantees are formally invited to work with the Foundation in preparing grant materials for proposal development and review by the trustees.
The Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or proposals for funding.
The Reekimlane Foundation will generally not fund:
- Individuals (grants are normally made to a registered UK charity or CIO)
- Fundraising events
- Medical causes or scientific research
- Religious causes
- Animal related causes
