The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation (PPCF) is a grant giving trust with Quaker family roots in the United Kingdom.  We aim to contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability.  Our priority is to address systemic threats by seeking to change policy and attitudes at a national or European level.  In order to do this, in the limited areas described below we support projects that seek to influence values and attitudes, promote equity and social justice, and develop radical alternatives to current economic and social structures. 


What We Fund

Peace and Sustainable Security

We support the development of ways of resolving violent conflicts peacefully, and of addressing their underlying causes.

Environmental Sustainability

We support work that addresses the pressures and conditions that risk global environmental breakdown.



PPCF's grant-making is managed by a board of trustees who have a wealth of experience in grant-making and who give their time freely to undertake the work of the foundation. They are led by Chair of Trustees, Angela Seay, and supported by the Trust Secretary, Christine Oliver.

The day to day running of the foundation is undertaken by the Trust Secretary who works part-time, although usually over five days (Monday to Friday).
