The Frank Jackson Foundation is a grant making trust registered in England, charity number 1007600. The Foundation was established by the late Mr Frank Jackson M.B.E., a well known businessman and philanthropist from Woodbridge in Suffolk.
The principal objectives of the Foundation, on which the majority of our funds are expended, are to benefit, through education, the disadvantaged and to support world-class research in institutions of higher learning. The Foundation supports a number of ‘core’ projects of this type, and information on these projects can be seen <here>. A secondary objective is to support, with smaller grants, a wider spectrum of causes which reflect the interests or expertise of the Trustees.
The organisations supported by the Foundation are based largely in the United Kingdom and in South Africa where the impact of small grants converted into the local currency from sterling can have a disproportionately positive effect.
