Set up by Sir Ian Wood and his immediate family in 2007, The Wood Foundation (TWF) is a Scottish based charity with a Global outlook. We are an open, intelligent and thoughtful funder who recognises that money alone will not solve some of society’s greatest inequalities. We therefore operate a Venture Philanthropic model, where help in business development and capacity support to our partners have the same priority as the funds we provide.

The Wood Foundation is proactive by nature and independently seeks opportunities to work alongside like-minded partners within our chosen investment areas. Our decisions for support and funding are based on key business principles, which work toward socio-economic benefits in our selected communities.
