“We Rise by Lifting Others” – Robert Ingersoll

Every day, charitable foundations and trusts around the world are supporting NGOs, charities, and community organizations to deliver services and facilities to those who could use a helping hand. Whether these funding bodies are headed up by super-wealthy philanthropists or businesses that take corporate social responsibility seriously – their money is always desperately needed to help make society a better place in which to live.

The Foundation Guide will showcase prominent foundations from around the world and the philanthropists behind the grants on offer. Most importantly, we’ll be highlighting what kind of projects these foundations and trusts have lent their support to, and offer fundraising news and tips – in the hope this will help charitable projects access and secure the money they so crucially need.
