This Sub-Fund has been created thanks to the vision and generosity of Deborah Ganderton and John Henry.
Established in the memory of Deborah Ganderton (1955-2022) this Sub-Fund furthers her legacy of strategic thinking and commitment to social justice ideals. John and Deborah met in 1995. John says that the moment he laid eyes on her he knew she was the love of his life.
The Deborah Ganderton & John Henry Sub-Fund will fund projects which support young women and gender diverse people in developing their skill and capacity in strategic foresight and strategic planning to advance full gender equality.
We welcome donations to this Sub-Fund. All contributions help build the financial pool for making grants and are fully tax-deductible.
In 2017, sixteen small grants were given for a range of projects that in one way or another will improve the lives of women and girls or women and their families.Read more
