We review and where necessary change our grantmaking priorities every three years. For the 2020-2023 priorities we undertook research which included consultation with Lambeth community organisations and schools in 2019. The Governors have adopted these Grantmaking Priorities for April 2020 to March 2023.
When reading these, remember that our focus is on low-income/poor Lambeth citizens, mostly under 30.

We are saddened to learn of the death of Gerald - Gerry - Bowden, a former longstanding Governor of the Walcot Foundation. He was 84.
Gerry's service to the Foundation was extensive and significant. Altogether he served as a Governor for 40 years, retiring in 2014. His approach to the finances and investments of the Foundation over those years helped increase our capacity as a grantmaker. We owe him a great deal. His wikipedia entry may be viewed here.
