Trusts and Foundations

We are grateful to have the support of many incredible trusts and foundations, who are supporting us in our mission to help 10,000 farming families across the UK. Without their contributions, we would be able to build confident rural communities or enable family farms to thrive through our many initiatives and programmes. We share an understanding that a thriving countryside is the foundation for a thriving nation. Together we are creating a real future for rural Britain.

If you are a trustee of, or have links to, a charitable trust or foundation which might be interested in supporting us, please get in touch with our Senior Trusts and Foundations Officer, Lindsay.

We are delighted to have received support from many trusts and foundations, including:

People’s Postcode Lottery

  • The Covid-19 relief that the People’s Postcode Lottery provided helped us support thousands of people in rural communities during a time of crisis. In total, the support they provided enabled over 3,000 shopping runs and 20,000 hot meals delivered to people in isolation.
  • Beyond Covid-19 relief, the People’s Postcode Lottery has consistently provided generous support that enables us to run many of our most successful projects, including Supporting Rural Communities and the Confident Rural Communities Network.

NFU Mutual Charitable Trust

Cairnfold Charitable Trust
