The Foundation was established in 1956. It is now a Bermuda company limited by guarantee. Its objects are as follows:

“The Company is established for the purpose of constituting a charity which shall carry out charitable objects throughout the world.”

We believe that a good education, in combination with good health, has the power to transcend; thus both should be readily available to all for the benefit of mankind. All people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and contribute to society.


For the last 60 years, the Cripps Foundation has made grants to institutions, capital projects and causes we believe have the potential to improve society. Whether we’re using education to help break the poverty cycle or improving the quality of education for those who already have access, from the slums of Cambodia to the splendors of Cambridge, Cripps Foundation changes lives.

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
