Who we are

The Ellis Campbell Foundation

A charitable family foundation 

The Ellis Campbell Foundation, a charity based in Hampshire, 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 £3.7m.

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 the Doris Campbell Memorial Fund managed by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation.

The Foundation is now focussed on bridging the gap between education and employment for disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 25 in the UK and is proud to be supporting many transformational projects in this important area.

Our Trustees

The people that make it all possible

Each of our trustees brings with them specific relevant areas of expertise, including financial, organisational, policy development and legal.

They meet twice a year to consider grant applications and have no restrictions on what they choose to invest in, leading to a wide and varied funding programme.
