Alchemy Foundation

Grant Sources

Grants are available to registered charities for water projects in the developing world, disability, social welfare, personal reform, penal reform, medical research and aid, and respite for carers in England and Wales.

Objectives of Fund

The charity supports a wide range of charitable work.

Value Notes

A substantial proportion of the total funds available are allocated in the form of repeat grants for projects previously supported. The amount available for supporting new projects is, therefore, limited.

Funding is at the discretion of the Trustees.

Match Funding Restrictions

Match funding is not a specified requirement.

Who Can Apply

Registered charities in England and Wales may apply.


Funding is not available for individuals.

Eligible Expenditure

The charity’s objects are particularly focused on the following:

  • The Alchemist Scheme.
  • Water projects in the developing world.
  • Disability, especially mobility, access, help lines and communications.
  • Social welfare, including inner city community projects, disaffected youth, family mediation, homelessness.
  • Personal reform.
  • Respite for carers.
  • Penal reform, including work with prisoners, especially young prisoners, and their families.
  • Medical research and aid, especially in the areas of blindness and disfigurement. (Please note, a very small amount of the funding goes to this category).
