FOUNDATION CONCEPT APPLICATION

The objective of the Foundation is to fund projects which address social, cultural, economic, education and health needs within communities where our staff and farmers live and work.

Projects can include (but are not limited to) providing educational resources and equipment, establishing sports and recreational facilities, upgrading structures to improve health and sanitation, carrying out training to support skills development and adult learning, or enabling the delivery of clean energy.

Project proposals are submitted to our Foundation Committee using the Concept Application Form (see reverse). Once proposals have been received, the Committee will meet to review the submissions and agree a shortlist based on how far the project meets the objectives of the Foundation, its affordability, urgency and level of impact.

If a project is shortlisted, applicants will be informed and required to complete a full Application Form which should include more detailed information on the project.
