Allen Lane Foundation (UK)


The Allen Lane Foundation is a grant making trust set up in 1966 by the late Sir Allen Lane, founder of Penguin Books, to support general charitable causes. The Foundation wishes to fund work which:

  • will make a lasting difference to people's lives rather than simply alleviating the symptons or current problems
  • is aimed at reducing isolation, stigma and discrimination, and
  • encourages or enables unpopular groups to share in the life of the whole community

Applications are processed continually.
