TFCF trustees are looking to support registered charities or not for profit enterprises in England or Wales with an annual turnover of less than £1m. 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 towards applications that support socially disadvantaged youth of teenage years. In practice we expect the majority of the organisations we support will have an annual income of less than £500,000.
What we Support
We are looking to support a limited number of causes each year in a meaningful way over one, two or three years. We will consider funding core costs where the organisation’s objectives meet those of the foundation.
