About us

We exist solely to have a positive and enduring impact on the lives of children and young adults with life-threatening conditions and serious disabilities

Ambition

We strive for maximum impact, embracing new ideas and encouraging growth wherever possible and appropriate.

Commitment

We are committed to using our funds wisely to achieve the best possible outcome for the children and families we support.

Integrity

We believe the fundamental basis of any collaboration or commitment is honesty and transparency.

We support children and their families by making grants to UK-registered charities whose aims and values align with our own.

The Kentown Wizard Foundation does not accept unsolicited enquiries or applications. We find grantees through our own research and collaborations within the charitable sector. We adopt a flexible yet focused approach to funding to ensure we make grants where they are most needed and can have the greatest impact.

Our strategy is ambitious and collaborative

We take every opportunity to listen to the organisations we support, to measure results and learn from them.

Since our establishment in 2015, our aim remains the same; to use our funds wisely to have the maximum impact on the lives of children and young adults with life-threatening conditions and serious disabilities and to keep these children at the heart of all our work.
