THE JOHN AND SUSAN BOWERS FUND
Activities - how the charity spends its money
About 80% of income from dividends, donations, tax recovery, interest is distributed in grants of ?500 to ?1200 to around 40 registered charities (mainly small, self-help, emerging) chosen in October by trustees. Most animal welfare and large charities are excluded. The balance is invested for income growth. Unsolicited funding applications are considered but only a minority are successful.
