Our aim is to preserve and promote Britain’s historical and intellectual assets and to provide assistance to vulnerable members of society.

We do this by supporting projects where our funds will make the greatest impact. We are also interested in projects where charities are having difficulty in raising funds from other sources.

We aim to be flexible while at the same time staying within our overall priorities.
