The Wellington Management UK Foundation has donated money and time to nonprofits that support youth in under-resourced communities. These organizations provide them access to best-in-class educational programs and services, enhancing their chances for future success.
Wellington Management UK Foundation
We believe education is a critical lever in creating opportunities for equitable outcomes, including social and economic mobility.
We support best-in-class programs and organizations in our communities that are improving education and educational opportunities for youth from traditionally under-resourced and historically marginalized communities.
How the foundation works
Thanks to your dedicated volunteers, young people have been made more aware of new opportunities and gained the insight, information and self-belief they need to take their first steps towards making their goals a reality.”
We look for organizations that enhance academic performance, improve behavior, reduce absenteeism, and develop life skills for youth up to 26 years in under-resourced communities. Grantee organizations may use our funding as they see fit, either for programmatic or operating expenses. Eligible organizations must be operating within the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Italy, and/or Spain. We are interested in supporting organizations where our grants have a transformative impact on youth but are not vital to running the organization. On this basis, we focus on grassroots organizations with current income of less than £2m annually. We provide grants on an annual basis, although multi-year grants will be considered once a relationship is established. We fund newer and more established organizations. We do prefer to fund organizations that can demonstrate the strength of their management and that have a measurable track record of success.
Please note that for the 2023 funding cycle, we will be operating an invitation-only application process.
Charities that wish to be considered for invitation in 2024 should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure that you meet all guidelines.
Charities that are already funded via an annual grant will need to reapply, as usual, while recipients of multi‐year grants do not need to re‐apply.
The Foundation relies on Wellington Management employees who volunteer their time and talent to conduct a thorough review of each applicant and organization we fund. Our funding cycles typically begin in April and grants are usually dispersed in August/September.
The Wellington Management UK Foundation accepts applications from organizations and programs for the annual grant making program that coincide with our mission and grant-making guidelines. Please read the mission and guidelines with care to evaluate whether your program is a clear fit with the Foundation’s funding priorities. Here are a few of our guidelines:
