BFSS welcomes approaches from other funders who are keen to work together to maximise impact and reduce costs.
By partnering with like-minded trusts and foundations, we can support more projects that provide life-changing educational opportunities for the children who need it most.
Our existing partners
The Richard Pain Trust aims to promote the mental and physical development of children and young people by providing financial assistance for their education. They approached us in 2019 to ask us to work in partnership and award grants on their behalf.
Working together has enabled us to support our shared aims through education projects for more children and young people, helping to transform their life chances.
Together we have supported these projects and more:
- Digital lessons for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, providing quality education in a language they understand.
- Improving chronically low literacy in Malawi through reading camps, libraries and community engagement.
- Support to access further education for refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.
How we work together
We have more wonderful charities approach BFSS with education projects than we can possibly fund. BFSS carefully assesses each application and discusses with Richard Pain Trust those projects which meet their aims. The Richard Pain Trust choose which of these projects to fund and we make it clear to recipients where the funding is from them. During the project BFSS monitors the project’s progress, shares updates and impact reports from the funded projects with the Trust.
A spokesperson for the Richard Pain Trust said: “We value the relationship because the BFSS vision and values align with our own charitable objects and instead of spending our funds on the process of having to review and manage grant applications, more funding goes directly to these life-changing projects.”
