We are a corporate foundation that aims to advance charitable purposes for the benefit of the public in any part of the world as determined by our trustees. We partner with national and local charities whose purpose and values are similar to our own.

We were founded by a philanthropic initiative of RSM UK, a leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services to middle market leaders, globally. On an ongoing basis RSM UK has provided the main source of income to the Foundation.

We make grants to registered charities in accordance with our grant making policy. We may, in exceptional circumstances, make grants directly to individuals.

All grant proposals must be made by email to info@rsmukfoundation.com and applications must be received between:


  • January and March for a decision in April; and
  • July and September for a decision in October.

Applications received outside of these timeframes shall only be considered in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the Foundation. More detailed information can be found from the Foundation's grant making policy here

The Trustees will only inform applicants of their decision if a grant is awarded.
