The Lillywhite Foundation is a UK registered charity (Charities Commission of England & Wales number 10633481). The Foundation is a UK non-profit company (Reg no. 10633481) limited by guarantee. The foundation was established to raise funds to aid or fund projects that give children and young people, both in the UK and internationally, greater opportunity to participate in sport and social activity. Over the years Lillywhite International has donated to numerous charities and projects that aim to help children in under privileged areas, both in the UK and abroad, enjoy greater opportunities to participate in sports and social activity. It is our belief that sports and activity increase not only the social well being of young people, but aids positive social development, increases confidence and self esteem, and teaches valuable life skills.
The Lillywhite Foundation will look to focus on identifying and funding specific projects that the Foundation and its Board of Trustees believe merit support. Like any charity The Foundation relies on donations from both generous individuals, corporates, and funds raised through events. The Foundation also directly receives a profit share from the commercial activities of both Lillywhite International, and the 7Rock UCITS V Fund, while additional donation partnerships have been established with a number of Lillywhite's institutional business partners.
The Lillywhite Foundation has an independent voluntary Board of Trustees, none of whom work for Lillywhite International, and who donate their time and experience to ensure that the Foundation is governed properly and that all funds received by the Foundation are appropriately used and go towards helping young people as intended.
The Lillywhite Foundation is a very exciting and rewarding part of the Lillywhite International group. It is the founders intention to continue to grow The Lillywhite Foundation so that it can help as many young people as possible.
