Trusts and Foundations
Many charitable trusts and foundations, in the UK and overseas, have supported our work over the years. Without their backing, we would not have been able to help as many children, parents and teachers.
Some foundations have given us seed money, helping us to start projects which otherwise might not have been possible. For instance, the Dulverton Trust paid for our early work on Good Books for Tough Times, the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust got us started on adapting Zippy’s Friends for children with learning difficulties, and the Todd Ouida Foundation enabled us to launch the programme in the United States.
Some foundations have paid for specific items. The Marden Foundation paid for the introductory video for Zippy’s Friends, the Persula Foundation paid the postage to send Good Books for Tough Times to all public libraries, and Equitable Charitable Trust paid for 700 sets of teaching materials.
Other foundations have given unrestricted donations, allowing us to use funds when and where they are most needed.
We are very grateful for all their support.
