The Salters' Charitable Foundation

Charitable giving has always been at the heart of the Salters’ Company and its members.  The Salters’ Charitable Foundation (SCF) upholds this 600-year old philanthropic tradition by distributing grants and donations to a wide range of causes that make a positive contribution to society and affect wider change.

Larger grants and bursaries are also awarded each year, focused on the following main priority themes:

  • London Citizenship & Community Development
  • Education (with a preference for science education at school and university level)
  • Projects supporting the elderly
  • Support for underserved and vulnerable communities

Small annual contributions are made at the discretion of the SCF Charities Committee to organisations which are close to Salters’ hearts, including City institutions our military affiliates and charities with personal connections.

SCF works with a limited number of affiliated schools and gives bursaries/ scholarships to students who show promise in Chemistry and its related disciplines.

As well as these main grant streams SCF is also able, where funds allow, to make small one-off grants to causes of particular interest, emergency appeals and charities identified by our members.

At present, we are unable to consider supporting any additional charities as our budget has been fully allocated for the year. With this in mind, we cannot accept or process any new requests for funding. We will update the website as and when this situation changes. Thank you.
