FoundationSearch UK Features Summary


There are literally thousands of charitable (grant giving) foundations and trusts located in England and Wales. Almost 4,000 new trusts have been formed within the past 36 months. These trusts represent billions of pounds in funding opportunities for the charitable sector.
