Alliance Family Foundation

The Alliance Family Foundation was formed by the Alliance family in 1968 as a means to help meet the financial, educational or religious needs of those less fortunate or less able to help themselves in times or circumstances of difficulty.
This remains the Foundation’s central purpose and the trustees continue to carry this out for the public benefit by the making of donations at their discretion to institutions, organisations and individuals they consider fall within their objects.
The Alliance Family Foundation aims to fund a wide range of projects in the UK and abroad, particularly those focusing on:
o The advancement of education;
o The relief of poverty and hardship; and
o The advancement of religion.
The Trust provides the majority of its support through donations to UK and foreign educational, religious and welfare charities but also makes donations for the educational, medical and general benefit of individuals through charitable organisations where considered appropriate (individuals are not directly eligible to apply).
The Foundation makes large grants to between five and six institutions each year and a number of smaller grants to charitable organisations. Match funding is not required.
During the year ending 31 March 2015, the Foundation made donations totalling £15,657,833 to 109 institutions, organisations and individuals (2014: £967,160 to 125 recipients). This included a single donation of £15 million to Manchester University.
PLEASE NOTE: applying organisations must be based in the UK.
The Foundation does not maintain a website. Further information is, however, available on the Charity Commission website.
