The Stone Family Foundation

The Stone Family Foundation is a UK charitable trust established in 2005, supporting innovative, sustainable and entrepreneurial approaches to major social problems, in the UK and around the world.

Having initially funded in a wide range of sectors, in 2010 the Foundation decided to commit three-quarters of its funding (around £4m per year) to support market-based solutions in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Since then, the Foundation has made over 20 grants and provided nearly £10m of funding to the sector.

In addition, the Foundation gives around £1.2m per year to projects in the UK for adult mental health and disadvantaged youth, and maintains a number of legacy grants from its early years.
