The WPA Benevolent Foundation has a clear remit: to promote healthy and active opportunities for young people in the South West.
The Foundation likes to support three year projects, working with communities and special-interest groups who share our hopes and ambitions. Longer-term partnerships ensure that we are able to work from the inception of a ´good idea´ through to maturity.
The Trustees of the WPA Benevolent Foundation direct the work of the Foundation and decide which good causes it will support. At the current time we are actively involved in a number of projects. Some examples of our work are: supporting Music in Schools that widens pupils´ musical experiences; assisting an important Youth and Children´s Centre in Bristol; helping to expand Scouting membership in Devon and Somerset.
Unfortunately, The WPA Benevolent Foundation is not able to accept applications unless their submission has been agreed in advance, so if you would like to be considered please send a brief project description by e-mail, including a contact telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org, and he will be able to guide you as to whether your project falls within the priority areas for the Foundation.
In addition we encourage the staff of WPA to select and support fundraising for local charities on a monthly basis. Staff are invited to make nominations for charities that they would like to support and then asked to vote. We match the value of funds raised.
Unfortunately we cannot accept applications from external sources and all nominations must come from our staff.
The Benevolent Foundation is a sister Organisation to the WPA Charitable Foundation that supports families, with poorly children, in financial distress.
