The philosophy of The Tindall Foundation is to provide assistance to heal problems rather than manage them – that is to give “a hand up not a hand out”. The Trustees have preference for projects that assist groups and communities to meet their own needs by better using their own resources in sustainable ways. Particular emphasis is placed on innovation, partnerships, links to other organisations and the community, multiple funding sources and ongoing sustainability when Tindall Foundation funding ceases.
