The John Sykes Foundation is a UK registered charity focused on the town of Reading. The Foundation’s key objective is to improve the lives and well-being of individuals and communities within the town where there is an element of disadvantage.
To deliver its objective, the charity provides grants to non-profit groups, other registered charities and trusts, as well as helping individuals on an independent basis who reside within the town. The Trustees aim to be responsive to where need is greatest and therefore supports a wide range of charitable activities. The only limitation is that (unless in extremely unique circumstances) any grant benefits individuals and communities based in Reading and the immediate surrounding suburbs of the town.
