Edith Murphy Foundation

The Edith Murphy Foundation offers grants to charities working in the UK.
The grant is intended to provide the following:
o Relief for those who by reason of their age, youth, infirmity, disablement, poverty or social and economic circumstances are suffering hardship or distress or are otherwise in need.
o Relief of suffering of animals of any species who are in need of care and attention and the provision and maintenance of facilities of any description for the reception and care of unwanted animals and the treatment of sick or ill-treated animals.
o Donations to any charitable institution or foundation at the discretion of the Foundation.
Grants are normally between £500 and £5,000, although larger grants are made in some circumstances.
