OUR GRANT MAKING
In line with our 5 year plan to 2024, the financial support offered by CHK Foundation is currently targeted to improve the lives and prospects of young people aged 11-24 who are “at risk”.
WHAT WE DO
CHK Foundation is an independent grant making charitable foundation. We fund registered charities across the UK and target our support in line with our 5 year plan.
WHO WE ARE
CHK Foundation is a family foundation set up as a charitable trust in the 1970’s. The majority of the Trustees are descendants of the founder, Sir Cyril Hugh Kleinwort (1905-1980).
OUR 5 YEAR PLAN
From 2019 to 2024, the Trustees will focus support to assist 25-30 charities a year. The funded charities will be working throughout the UK in a targeted way to improve the lives and prospects of young people aged between 11 and 24 who are “at risk” as a result of:
- involvement in the criminal justice system
- leaving the care system
CHK Foundation undertakes its own research to determine the charities it wishes to consider for funding and will make direct contact to begin discussions about opportunities. CHK Foundation aims to fund both preventative and direct support.
Charities working to improve the lives and prospects of young people at risk from the factors listed above can alert CHK Foundation to their work by sending a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, applications for funding are not invited. Please note that the CHK Foundation Trustees regret it is not possible to acknowledge or send a reply to those that make contact.
