News from the Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation
The Trustees announce that the Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation will cease its activities as a grant making charity and close after meeting its existing obligations. 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 applications are invited.

The Trustees also announce that Robert Wallis, one of the founding Trustees has stepped down after 10 years of service on the board. 
The Trustees wish to acknowledge the significant contribution he has made over that time. In particular, his expertise in property management and investment ensured that significantly greater amounts were realised from the disposal of those assets, resulting in more funds available for the beneficiaries. Robert has helped to develop some of the charities supported by the Foundation through his mentoring. He also used his facilitation skills for different sessions including one for new charities and the Foundation's board strategy days. 
The Trustees wish him all the best for his future endeavours.

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
