We have chosen our funding themes because they:

  • Connect with the interests of Waddesdon Manor and Estate
  • Support issues, sectors and demographic groups that have been significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic
  • Focus on building a positive future and a resilient county

Applications over £100,000 will be discussed at Trustees meetings in July and November each year and announced afterwards.
