The Span Trust seeks to fund projects by awarding grants between £5,000 and £20,000 that will alleviate poverty, disability, age or ill health, and advance urban regeneration through the improvement of the built environment. We offer grants to both registered and exempt charities.
The Trust was founded and registered as a UK Charity by Sandy Valik and Monty Gershon. It is ultimately funded from the profits of The Span Group; a design and architecture property investment firm in North West London.
