Henry Smith Charity
"The Henry Smith Charity is a large grant making charity. We make grants totalling approximately £25 million each year to up to 1,000 organisations and charities throughout the UK for initiatives and projects that address social inequality and economic disadvantage...
"The Henry Smith Charity has been helping to combat disadvantage since 1628. Henry Smith, the founder of the Charity, was a London salt merchant who purchased land around the country. During his life he created a number of charitable trusts for the relief of the poor. He died in 1628 leaving his Trustees the sum of £2,000. Today, the Charity continues to honour the spirit of Henry Smith’s Will by focusing its grant making on the challenges and opportunities facing people in need throughout the UK."
