Supporting local charities and community causes

Who we support

Shanly Foundation - Who we support

The Foundation primarily supports local good causes in the South East of England, particularly Thames Valley, Home Counties and London. These include scouting and guide groups, schools, community groups, sporting groups, social and community events, Rotary clubs and registered charities. We consider each and every application thoroughly and our award or pledge is usually a one-off. There are also a number of organisations we support on a regular long-term basis which include Thames Hospice and Sayers Croft.
