The Veterans’ Foundation (VF) is an independent grant-making charitable foundation. The VF has established a substantial grants programme to support charities and organisations in the UK that provide charitable support to those in need among serving armed forces personnel, veterans, operationally qualified seafarers and their immediate families. The charity has grown rapidly since inception in July 2016 and has to date (Jan 2024) given away more than £19.4M to good causes and handed out around £1.5M to good causes each quarter for the past year.
The VF supports a broad range of charities and organisations that deliver a wide variety of projects to members of the armed forces community including those that reduce homelessness, increase employment, provide welfare and medical support, increase confidence and social integration, as well as reducing dependence on alcohol and drugs.
The VF gives priority to charities and organisations who can demonstrate that they are directly involved in the provision of support to those in need, and well-run organisations of low to medium wealth.
Since inception, income has come mainly from the Veterans’ Lottery, however, individual and corporate donations have grown significantly, and we now have staff focusing on this too.
