The Wellbank Foundation is a small, family run, grant-making charity that supports registered charities based in the North East of England, that wants to back initiatives that improve people's lives and help them reach their full potential. The charities it works with have to be helping people who are disadvantaged, whether for financial, health or other reasons. The Foundation is particularly keen to support any projects that provide educational, sporting or environmental benefits.
Grants are available of between £500 and £25,000 to registered charities for projects that meet the Foundation's criteria. The trustees meet once a quarter to review all the grant requests that have been received through the application process, but can respond quickly when there is a more immediate need.
