The Hargreaves Foundation is a grant-making charitable foundation set up in 2020 by Peter Hargreaves and his family. Applications are open for organisations seeking funding to support those under the age of 18, and living with a mental health problem, physical disability or growing up in poverty through the mediums of sport and education.
I have been very fortunate in my life to have had a successful career, helping to build an exceptional company and one that has transformed the opportunities for individuals to save and invest for their futures.
While I am proud of my professional achievements, my family and I now wish to establish a more formal and sustainable structure to enable us to make a positive and significant contribution outside of the world of work. Having spent the last few years in retirement, I have had time to reflect on and discuss with my family how best to make that contribution and to which causes.
The Foundation’s objectives are underpinned by the desire to give those under the age of 18, and living with a mental health problem, physical disability, or growing up in poverty, the opportunity to fulfil their potential, improving wellbeing, self-esteem and independence.Learn More
