The Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation
Final Grants Programme June 2022

The Trustees of the Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation have decided that the Foundation will cease its activities as a grant making charity and close after meeting its existing obligations and spending out its funds in an orderly manner. The Trustees aspire to complete this over the next 18 months. Grantees who hold multi-year grants will be contacted in due course.  Therefore, no new multi-year applications are invited.
The Trustees wish is to provide clear guidance to grantees and applicants about the expectations and processes of how the (FGP) will be implemented.  The FGP will be carried out on the basis of direct awards to organisations who will be invited to apply for a final grant. It is therefore a closed programme where the Trustees will approach the organisations to offer a final grant, so there will be no open application invitation/competition process.


Founded by the late Betty Messenger in 2010, The Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation is a charity awarding grants.


The Foundation has two trustees who are supported by a wider network of advisors and reviewers.

The trustees were inspired by the words below:

“Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.”  

                                                                       (Clarisssa Pinkola Estes)

Our aspiration is to embrace all people irrespective of race or gender, disabilities medical or other needs
