The Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or proposals for funding.
The Foundation normally applies its annual income to charitable causes proactively selected by its trustees. Grant-making decisions aim to honour the family’s historical philanthropy and to make a positive impact going forward.
From time to time, the Foundation may identify new focus areas and conduct research and due diligence to identify charities and programmes best placed to make a difference. Those identified will be invited to apply for support. The Foundation will work with prospective grantees in preparing materials and developing proposals for review by the trustees.
Grants are normally made to a registered UK charity or CIO. The Reekimlane Foundation will generally not fund:
- Fundraising events
- Medical causes or scientific research
- Religious causes
- Animal-related causes
