The John Ellerman Foundation are an independent grantmaking foundation – supporting charities that make a practical difference to people, society and the natural world. They fund specialist Fellowships for the programme.
The Foundation was set up as a generalist grantmaking trust in 1971. They continue with the broad philanthropic interests of their benefactor Sir John Ellerman, while reflecting changing times.
Their aim is to advance the wellbeing of people, society and the natural world. They achieve their aim through funding organisations working in Arts, Environment and Welfare and generating income for grants from investments.
