As a small family charitable organisation we are looking to support a limited number of causes in a meaningful way, preferably over three years.
TFCF trustees will only support registered charities or not for profit enterprises in England or Wales with an annual turnover of less than £1m. In practice we expect the organisations we support to have an annual income of less than £500,000. Charities need to be able to demonstrate they make a difference to the life chances of young people under the age of 25. The trustees will give greater consideration to applications that support socially disadvantaged youth of teenage years.
