Supporting The Soldiers’ Charity through Trusts & Foundations
The breadth of support we receive from charitable trusts & foundations is incredibly wide ranging, from family and local trusts to well known national funding bodies.
We work in partnership with both our current funders and potential funders alike to ensure their donation reflects, or will reflect, the interests of their trustees. We send regular update reports, where required, to our funders telling the stories of beneficiaries whose lives have been changed as a result of their support.
Unrestricted donations allow us flexibility to support programmes where it is most needed, allowing our Grants and Welfare team to adapt to changing needs; while a programme or region specific donation, such as support for our Wounded to Work project, enables us to plan ahead with regards to funding needs.
We offer a wide range of support for members of the Army family in need; from support to the wounded, housing, health and disability, through to education and training needs. The oldest recipient of a grant last year was 102 years old, while the youngest was a one year old.
Our Trusts team is happy to provide information on our work in particular regions or programmes, and work side by side with trustees to ensure their funding objectives are met. We are also happy to arrange a visit to our offices to discuss larger funding opportunities.
