OurPartnership Approach

Identifying potential funding partners

  • The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals, but will identify potential funding partners through our leadership, staff and other stakeholders across the Dukes family.
  • From small charities and grassroots groups through to the big ‘household names’ of the charity world, our aim remains the same – to listen to the concerns and funding priorities of those applying to us, and those we’ve chosen to work in partnership with, to give help where most needed.

A transparent grant-making process

  • The Foundation applies clear criteria in its shortlisting of potential funding recipients.
  • Grant-making decisions are made at the discretion of the Board of Trustees, following a robust, fair, and transparent evaluation process that identifies the most high-quality projects and initiatives.
