We provide funding to eligible organisations and projects which further the aims of the EA Foundation in four key areas


To provide educational opportunities for children, young people and adults, particularly from disadvantaged communities

Basic services

To improve access to basic services such as healthcare, clean water and electricity in disadvantaged communities


To address poverty and financial hardship


To tackle environmental challenges and promote sustainable development.

The EA Foundation supports projects around the world, with a particular focus on the least economically developed regions where the absolute need is greatest. Where we support organisations in the UK or other advanced economies we prioritise activities that have a strong international theme (e.g. support for refugees and asylum seekers).

All grants are awarded at the discretion of the trustees, in line with our charitable objectives and grant-making policy.
