The Alburys Charitable Foundation (TACF) has been established by Malcolm and Gail Paterson to fulfil their wishes to formalise and expand their charitable giving over the remainder of their lives.
Its objectives are to support general charitable purposes, through the provision of grants in particular, to support the following charitable purposes:
Like many other people of their age, they already donate to charities in various, fairly modest, ways, for example with Children In Need, Oxfam's International emergencies, Sponsoring friends and family, and
supporting independent Theatres, concert venues and opera houses. The “charitable giving” in these circumstances is a bit hit and miss: small amounts dissipated among a wide range of charitable organisations on an ad hoc basis and without much focus on the donation other than it seemed the right thing to do at the time.
Their charitable foundation, on the other hand, has a well-defined grant-making process with grants targeted toward particular charities and for particular purposes. The grants will be made on condition that the money is used for a clearly defined purpose such as the fulfilment of a particular charity project.
