Funds for NGOs, Funds for Indian NGOs
The Anglo American Group Foundation was founded in 2005 and is funded by Anglo American plc, one of the world’s largest mining companies, which prides itself on being a responsible business partner. Anglo American seeks to ensure that its impacts contribute to sustainable livelihoods in the communities in which it operates and the Foundation was founded on the same principles. The Foundation is independent of the Anglo American group of companies, which means that neither Anglo American nor its subsidiaries can benefit from any charitable giving by the Foundation.
The Foundation prefers to fund specific projects or components of projects within the overall activities of an organisation that are a priority area in need of support. All projects submitted for consideration should have clearly defined objectives with quantifiable outcomes. All applications for funding are reviewed by the Board of Trustees.
The Foundation funds projects in those countries around the world in which Anglo American has operations, projects or representative offices:
It does not support projects in South Africa, where funding is handled by the award-winning Anglo American Chairman’s Fund.
In the UK, the Foundation supports projects close to Anglo American’s head office in London, in the boroughs of Westminster, Southwark and Lambeth.
