The Peter De Haan Charitable Trust was constituted in 1999 and is a registered charity (number 1077005.)
The Trust aims to improve the quality of life for people and communities in the UK through its work with arts, environmental and community welfare organisations. Some of the projects the Trust supports combine these themes to maximise the impact of its funding.
Led by businessman and philanthropist Peter De Haan, the Trust operates under a venture philanthropy model, working closely with the organisations it supports financially and organisationally to increase their capacity and impact.
Since 1999 the Trust has donated £21,340,500 to the benefit of over 540 organisations. Currently the Trust is targeting a significant proportion of its resources towards IdeasTap, the creative network for emerging creative people, UK wildlife trusts and community projects surrounding its South London offices.
The Trust will not exist in perpetuity, as the founding Trustees planned for its reserves to be gradually spent over a 20 year period from its date of constitution.

The Trust is not open to unsolicited applications.
