Funding programmes

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 and equine and horse-racing 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.
