The Waterloo Foundation

The Waterloo Foundation (TWF) is an independent grant-making Foundation. We are most interested in projects that help globally, with particular focus on the disparity of opportunities, wealth and the unsustainable use of the world’s natural resources. To that end, our main programmes support:

  • World Development – support to help the economically disadvantaged build the basis of sustainable prosperity, through improving education and access to water, sanitation and hygiene in developing countries.
  • Environment - support for projects which counter damage to the environment, especially human-caused effects, through increasing marine fish stocks and protecting tropical rain forests.
  • Child Development – support for research, knowledge dissemination, and small Wales-based intervention projects about certain child development conditions.
  • Wales – support for organisations working in Wales which provide support for unpaid carers, increase employment opportunities or run community renewable energy projects.
