Established  in  1958,  the  Garfield  Weston  Foundation  is  a  family-founded  charitable  grant-making  trust  which  now  gives  away approximately £80 million a year to charities across the UK. Having established one of the most respected charitable institutions in the UK, the Weston Family Trustees today remain highly active and hands-on. The Foundation’s funding comes from an endowment of shares in the family business – a successful model that still endures today and as the businesses have grown so too have the charitable donations.
