Foundation’s Governor Priorities help guide the type of projects that we fund
within our focus on Lambeth low-income residents. We review them every three years. You can see
our current priorities below.
To help in
this process we are inviting views, especially (but not only) from our
partners: current and former grantees; Lambeth schools and organisations; those
with knowledge of Lambeth and an interest in our work.
If you would
like to help, please complete our survey questions below. You should keep in mind that our charitable
objects require that ALL our funding
must be focused on Lambeth beneficiaries and 85% needs to be focused on education/training for under 30s.
We think the
survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete.
It will run until 8 July 2019. All submissions will be considered. The new Governor Priorities will be published
on our website in January 2020 and will be used to guide our grant-making from
much for your time. If you have specific questions, please contact Daniel Chapman,
Grants Manager via email@example.com.
