Our grantmaking is central to the way we work and how we achieve results that contribute to our mission. Occasionally, we make specific donations that are important but not directly related to our mission, for example in the COVID-19 context. You can search for both grants and donations below. Most grants run for several years and we have shown their total value. We decide on annual instalments based on regular reviews.
