Major gifts, trusts and foundations

The work done by The Work Foundation requires long-term investment. This is why the support we receive from major donors and charitable trusts and foundations is essential. We need your help to speed up our progress and help change the future of work for the benefit of vulnerable groups in society and the future economic prosperity of the UK.

The Work Foundation provides a unique model that combines research with applied results. We are keen to build relationships with trusts and foundations and major donors that are interested in our work and share our vision for change in work and the workplace, specifically for the benefit of vulnerable groups within society with a view to building a better and stronger economy for all. 

If you are a trustee or have links to a charitable trust, please get in touch to discuss how your support can help. Funding can go towards specific topics or fund the ongoing costs associated with our work.

The Work Foundation has a dedicated team, which works closely with individual donors and charitable trusts and foundations giving £10,000 or more. We are happy to discuss funding options and ensure that major gifts are allocated according to your wishes.

We are always happy to conduct briefings on our work. For further information please contact and we can direct you to the relevant area of work and research teams. If you are alumni of Lancaster University please contact
