Who we are

Belfast-based LFT Charitable Trust was established in 2017 to promote and support charitable purposes and activities. We are a family-led Trust which is intended to be exclusively grant making, with no fundraising or operating activities. Our vision is of a just world where people have equal opportunity to transform their lives, participate in their communities and build successful futures.

What we do

LFT Charitable Trust is primarily a proactive funder. We build our knowledge by talking to and meeting with individuals and organisations working within our priority areas. This approach enables LFT to proactively identify, through research and engagement, initiatives and organisations related to LFT’s focus areas. Where we identify opportunities and the prospect of a project that aligns with our current grant making policy, we invite proposals for funding.  We’ve funded projects across a range of geographies and themes, from helping people with brain injury in NI to vital NGO work in Madagascar.

What we’re looking for To enable us to continue awarding grants to dynamic and ambitious grant partners we are looking to invite new Trustees to join our family Trustees – someone with a business head and social heart.
