The Ellis Campbell Foundation was established in 1990 by Michael Campbell, representing the fourth generation of the family’s property investment office, the Ellis Campbell Group. Since that time the Foundation has primarily supported organisations focussed around the areas of youth, education and heritage in Hampshire, Perthshire and London with grants totalling over £1.5m.
The Foundation has supported many wonderful organisations in Hampshire over the years and continues to support Treloar School, through a sports fund and Alton College, through engineering scholarships. Most of the Hampshire grants are now run through a fund set up in memory of Doris Campbell and managed by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation. In Perthshire the Foundation has worked in partnership with Foundation Scotland for many years on local youth initiatives, apprenticeships and supporting local businesses; the Foundation is currently supporting the Aberfeldy Community Workshop.
The Foundation is now focussed on bridging the gap between education and employment for disadvantaged young people in the UK and is proud to be supporting many transformational projects in this important area.
