The Wolfson Foundation is an independent grant-making charity, based in central London but funding across the UK. At the heart of what we do is an emphasis on education and research.
Our aims and approach
We want to contribute to the health, resilience and variety of our society. We believe that supporting education — in its broadest sense and across the life course — is a key way to do that.
Our aim is also to promote excellence in the areas we fund. We often make grants to act as a catalyst to generate more support and help to attract funding to areas that may otherwise be under-resourced.
We are keen to encourage applications from parts of the UK where we have traditionally received fewer applications or where there are few other sources of funding.
We want to understand the experiences and perspectives of our applicants and partners, and so we regularly commission independent reviews and publish the findings.
