o Application deadline: none - applications may be made at any time in writing, but contact the Foundation in the first instance about the availability of grants and how to apply.


o Who can apply: the Foundation’s Charity Commission entry indicates that it will fund registered charities in England and Wales that are working in England, Wales and the United States. However, separate information suggests the Foundation will support charities across the UK and worldwide. If you’re interested in applying to the Foundation, we suggest contacting it for clarification about its geographic areas of interest.


The Terence Cole Foundation was formed  by Terence Cole, co-founder and joint Chief Executive of MARCOL, an international investment house with a 45-year track record in equity investment and asset management, helping businesses grow and succeed internationally.

The Terence Cole Foundation is a family-based grant-making Trust. Its two principal trustees, Terence and Niki Cole are patrons and benefactors of a number of charities. The objectives of the Foundation are:

o To alleviate pain, suffering and financial hardship.
o To promote art in the form of museums, galleries or other forms to advance education in the arts.
o To provide education, and access to education.
o To provide relief for the victims of war,
o To support projects for the provision of sport.

Any grant awards are likely to be modest, as the Foundation’s annual expenditure for the year ended 31 March 2020 was just £45,161, although in previous years its expenditure has ben higher (in 2019 donations totalled £72,891, while in 2018 donations amounted to £447,397).

Please note the Foundation does not maintain a website. Further information is, however, available on the Charity Commission website.

It is likely that applications may be made at any time in writing. Nonetheless, we suggest contacting the Foundation at the address below to check the availability of grants and how to apply.
