The Will Houghton Foundation works with UK charities to help 14–24 year olds to reach their potential through education and sport.


Applications for grants must be for the benefit of 14–24 years olds in the UK. Requests for grants ranging from £100 to £10,000 will be considered.

Enquiries should be made by filling in the form in the Contact section.

If the application satisfies our criteria an application form will be sent out. Applications may be made at any time of the year and will be considered at the next meeting of the Trustees. The Trustees meet four to six times each year.

The Foundation will endeavour to reply to all applications.
Trustees will require further information or may wish to visit the organisation applying for funds before reaching a decision.
