The Foundation prefers to fund specific projects or components of projects within the overall activities of an organisation that are a priority area in need of support. All projects submitted for consideration should have clearly defined objectives with quantifiable outcomes. All applications for funding are reviewed by the Board of Trustees.
The Foundation funds projects in those countries around the world in which Anglo American has operations, projects or representative offices:
It does not support projects in South Africa, where funding is handled by the award-winning Anglo American Chairman’s Fund.
In the UK, the Foundation supports projects close to Anglo American’s head office in London, in the boroughs of Westminster, Southwark and Lambeth.
