The Beaverbrook Foundation
The Beaverbrook Foundation is a UK registered charity, established in 1954 by the first Lord Beaverbrook.
Beaverbrook was a giant of the British 20th Century political scene. He owned the Daily Express newspaper group, and among numerous achievements, sat on the War Cabinet in both World Wars.
The Beaverbrook Foundation supports a variety of causes in the United Kingdom and Canada, including preserving heritage buildings and supporting charitable appeals. Three lifeboats have been given to the British RNLI, and over 750 separate charitable bodies have received grants over the last fifty years.
The Foundation has also been entrusted with important collections of political papers and cartoons, which are being looked after for future generations.
