Helping to change lives
We are constantly evaluating potential new projects, validating their programmes and carrying out due diligence. Once we have decided to support a Project details will appear here.
Our objective is to work with smaller grass-roots community-based projects where a grant from the The Derek Moore Foundation will make a significant difference.
We look at projects that have been running for a minimum of two years; proven and viable projects that can benefit in a demonstrable way from help from us which will fund the next stage of their development.
If you wish to donate to one of the projects detailed here please take note of the date the funds for that project will be forwarded.
