Trusts & Foundations

Funding from Trusts & Foundations provide over a third of our annual income* & many continue to fund our activities year in, year out.

Grief Encounter fun Days
Preparing

We receive no government funding and rely entirely upon voluntary donations to pursue the important and life-changing work we do. Without the invaluable support from Trusts and Foundations, we simply couldn’t provide some of our core work or trial brand new projects.

*Excluding gala dinner years

  • Supporting core costs and critical overheads to ensure our survival
  • Part funding Family programme projects
  • Multi-Year funding to guarantee long-term support for families with complex grief
  • Emergency funding to reduce gaps in income due to COVID-19 restrictions
  • Funding to enable us to trial new ways of working
  • Matched funding to leverage additional funding

If you would like to find out more about Grief Encounter’s work, are a trustee, have a relationship with a trust or are hoping to set one up, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Sabina, Grief Encounter case study

“I don’t think I would be smiling today if it wasn’t for Grief Encounter. My mum died suddenly when I was 12 and we never got to say goodbye. Several months later, my grandmother insisted I attend a Grief Encounter workshop – against my wishes. I never looked back, after several one-to-one counseling sessions and attending many other workshops, my life opened up and here I am today!”
