Grants are available to registered charities in the UK for projects relating to education, the visual and performing arts, the relief of disability and severe illness, the preservation of buildings of architectural or historical significance and the accomodation of those in need.
The Foundation was established in 2001 by the executors of the will of Sylvia Waddilove. Miss Waddilove left a portion of her estate on trust for charitable purposes and had indicated during her lifetime, both the types of charitable purposes she favoured and the way in which her funds should be used. The Foundation uses its discretion to follow those wishes as far as possible.
The Trustees aim to meet in January, April, July, and October. Applications will open shortly before each scheduled Trustees’ meeting. Applicants should monitor the Trust’s webpage for an announcement that applications have opened.
A standard application form is available from the Foundation's website and can be returned by e-mail or post, although the Foundation prefers to receive applications by email.
