Supporting The Soldiers’ Charity through Trusts & Foundations

The breadth of support we receive from charitable trusts & foundations is incredibly wide-ranging, from family and local trusts to well-known national funding bodies.

We work with current funders and potential funders alike to ensure their donation reflects, or will reflect, the interests of their Trustees. We send regular update reports, where required, to our funders telling the stories of beneficiaries whose lives have been changed as a result of their support.

Unrestricted donations allow our Grants and Welfare team the flexibility to support programmes where help is most needed. Region-specific donations or donations towards programmes such as The Tools for Transition project enables us to plan ahead with regards to funding needs.

Our support for the Army family addresses a variety of issues. We help individuals with limited mobility, housing challenges, problems with old age and educational needs. The oldest recipient of a grant last year was 103 years old, while the youngest was a two-year-old.

Our Trusts team is happy to provide information on our support programmes or our work in specific regions, and work side by side with Trustees to ensure their funding objectives are met. We are also happy to arrange a visit to our offices to discuss larger funding opportunities.
