The Ernest Hecht Charitable Foundation’s applications process is closed and will remain closed until further notice.

Who do we Support?

The Foundation provides funding to a broad range of UK-registered charities working to support or improve the lives of recipients through art, healthcare, literature, music and theatre. The Trustees give priority to projects where their donation can make a difference and can progress the Charity’s initiative. There is a broad remit and all applications will be considered on their own merits.

The Trustees do not accept applications from individuals or from charities whose primary area of benefit is outside of the UK.
