Trusts & Foundations
The Youth Adventure Trust prides itself on developing stong relationships with local, regional and national charitable trusts and grant making foundations. Grants from charitable trusts and foundations enable us to provide sustainable funding for our 3 school year Youth Adventure Programme. We have a range of funding opportunities available where a grant from your charitable trust can make a tangible difference to the lives of the young people we support.
We would be delighted to welcome you to our Programme to give you a real insight into how a grant could make a real difference to these young people.
Our funding needs range from individual project costs to small items of capital funding and in these difficult financial times, the all important core funding.
Some current trust support includes:
The Garfield Weston Foundation - who are supporting our core costs, enabling us to plan ahead for the future and allocate money where it is needed most.
Barbara Ward Children’s Foundation – who are kindly supporting us with 3 years of crucial core cost funding, so our expert staff can allocate money where it is needed most.
BBC Children in Need – who are supporting our Coastal Camps which take place on Brownsea Island in Dorset and involves the children increasing their confidence and self belief through sailing, windsurfing, building rafts and taking part in a range of team games.
