Our giving

The Anne Duchess of Westminster’s Charity is an independent grant-making foundation  which aims to assist charities with objectives that reflect the interests and causes of its founder, Anne Duchess, in the areas in the UK in which she lived: Cheshire and the Highlands of Scotland in addition to UK military welfare organisations. Our priority is to support small to medium sized charities and charitable organisations which offer sustainable, measurable and effective help to those they seek to benefit During 2018 we are conducting a strategic review of our grant-making programmes and therefore our grants programme is suspended until 1st December 2018. During this period we will not be able to accept or consider any applications.

Please check this page for updates, the launch of the new funding strategy and revised online application form. Other than grant-making our other main charitable activity is our Charity Race Day at Bangor on Dee Racecourse.
