Next Steps

The three trustees of The Ten Percent Foundation are due to meet on the 9th May 2024. We match all charities against our selection criteria and then publish the results. Some of the detail has already been checked against the criteria, but we will consider each charity in full.

Here is the Ten Percent Foundation Funding Criteria:

  1. The charity deals with a range of work that appeals to us.
  2. The charity has no ulterior motive – eg religious teachings or political leanings.
  3. The charity appears to do some good, does not hoard money or spend it frivolously.
  4. The charity pays its staff a reasonable and not excessive level of remuneration. For us the level is £75,000 as an absolute maximum. We would only ever expect to see 1 or 2 members of staff on salaries of more than £60,000 in very large charities.

The trustees of The Ten-Percent Foundation are particularly interested in the following types of charity or worthy cause:

  • Charities that support small tangible projects in Africa.
  • Charities that deal with poverty and the effects of poverty in the UK.
  • Specific support for the education of children in Africa.
  • Support for stammering and in particular children affected by speech impediments.
  • Support for people who have Parkinsons.
  • Support for people who have had a stroke.
  • Charities working with ex-offenders.
  • Charities with links to the legal profession (we work in the legal sector).
  • Charities dealing with victims (and perpetrators of) domestic violence.
  • Charities dealing with youth work in areas particularly affected by poverty.
  • Animal conservation – in particular third world conservation.
  • Charities saving the rainforest by purchasing it.
  • Local sports clubs and organisations.
