About Us

Our fund makes small grants mainly in the North East of England and Cumbria. It was set up by Leo Finn, a former chief executive of Northern Rock PLC with the support of the Northern Rock Foundation which he served as a founder trustee and chairman.

Grants Policy

We do not seek applications from charities concerned with medical research, animal welfare or the promotion of religion. Primarily we look for opportunities where a small grant will offset some disadvantage and improve the quality of life of the recipients, particularly young people. We prefer small charities led by volunteers . Our maximum grant is usually £3000.


Applications & Contact

We will consider an application at any time . Please submit information by email to finnfamilyfund@yahoo.com
