Organisations

Heritage Lottery Fund
Organisation
The Heritage Lottery Fund uses money from the National Lottery to support projects that make a lasting difference for heritage, people and communities. Through its funding and other initiatives, HLF helps organisations with a heritage remit to become more financially sustainable and engage successfully with donors, supporters and investors.
Paul Hamlyn Foundation
Organisation
Paul Hamlyn Foundation was established by Paul Hamlyn in 1987. Upon his death in 2001, he left most of his estate to the Foundation, creating one of the largest independent grant-making foundations in the UK. Our mission is to help people overcome disadvantage and lack of opportunity, so that they can realise their potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives.
Royal Parks Foundation
Organisation

We exist to raise funds and awareness to support the magic of London's eight amazing Royal Parks, now and in the future.

Looking after 5,000 acres of carefully conserved urban parkland, home to hundreds of thousands of trees, plants and wildlife, plus numerous historic monuments and of course more than 77 million visitors each year, is no small task.

Whilst The Royal Parks receives a government grant for the day-to-day care and management of the lawns, flower beds, roads and paths - keeping them safe and clean, in beautiful condition and bursting with life all year round - that grant has just been cut by more than 25% and there is little or no funding for sport, education, art, heritage restoration or wildlife conservation projects.

So that’s where we come in! We’re a small, energetic team of people who work incredibly hard to raise funds, make the most of every relationship and create a wide variety of innovative projects to make The Royal Parks better spaces for nature and places for people in the heart of London.

The Greg Secker Foundation
Organisation
Founded in 2010, the Greg Secker Foundation is a not-for-profit organization committed to positively improving the quality of life of people around the world. Focusing on education, life skills and leadership initiatives, the foundation strives to equip communities with sustainability by providing the essential tools of success.
William Harvey Research Foundation
Organisation

William Harvey Research addresses areas of unmet need in pharmacology and the life sciences, with a focus on early-stage research in cardiovascular disease, endocrine disorders, genomics and inflammation.

We exist because funding is limited for early-stage research: very few charities focus on this.  Our research addresses many targets (for common and for rare diseases) where there is at present little or no effective treatment.

Statistics that put our research in perspective include the following: 60% of people over 65 in the UK suffer from heart disease; over 6000 patients are waiting to receive organ transplants, and these usually last on 10-15 years; 350,000 children’s lives are debilitated through heart conditions.

Innovative research at WHR is focussed on the advancement of knowledge and the development of new treatments, with the aim of improving these statistics. 

Our focus on early-stage, pioneering research is performed at world-leading pharmacology centre, the William Harvey Research Institute.  We advance medical knowledge, increase success in clinical trials, and create the potential for new treatments.

WHR’s robust financial model ensures 100% of all donations are used entirely to support research.

William Harvey Research comprises the William Harvey Research Foundation (the charitable arm), William Harvey Research Institute, and William Harvey Research Limited.
