Trusts and Foundations

Willow works with many trusts and foundations who make it possible for us to support seriously ill young adults. Working closely with grant-making organisations, we are happy to direct funding to your area of preference.

Willow works across the UK, yet we can restrict your funding to a specific region or support beneficiaries with a specific condition or by age. You may wish to ask to direct your funding towards an area of greatest need, or towards specific projects, which can be medical urgency, people living with rare diseases or beneficiaries on low incomes for example.

However you choose to support us, you can be sure that your donations will go towards creating precious memories for seriously ill young adults and their families.

We will keep you informed with the progress of your donation with a detailed report on how you have helped our beneficiaries.

To find out more about how you can support Willow email us or call 01707 259777.

Our Trust and Foundation supporters

Willow was delighted to have been awarded a one year grant from the Alexion Charitable Foundation through their ‘Rare Belonging’ grant programme. The grant will enable Willow to extend their work with young adults aged 16 to 40 who are living with rare diseases, and will support 150 seriously ill young people and their families with a bespoke Special Day service. Here, you can read a story of someone with a rare disease that we have supported.

Pink Ribbon have been a long-term supporter of our work over the years. Specifically supporting Special Days for young women diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the illness with highest incidence in our age group and therefore makes up a significant proportion of our work. Over the last five years, our supporters been helped to support over 1700 women living with breast cancer, and you can read one of their stories here.

The Arsenal Foundation and Arsenal FC have been intrinsically linked with our charity for many years. We thank them for their long-term commitment and the many different ways in which they support Willow, including hosting Special Days at the Emirates, boosting charity retail shop sales with Arsenal stock and supporting Special Days through funding from the Foundation. Read about a heart-warming Special Day that helped create precious memories, which would not have been possible without the support of the Foundation here!
