Welcome to the PH Holt Foundation

Celebrating 100 years of helping to make Merseyside a better place to live

The PH Holt Foundation, incorporating the Holt Education Trust, is an independent grant-maker supporting local communities, education, the arts, heritage and environment on Merseyside. 

The Foundation provides grants to small and medium sized charities which have the capacity to change lives and to develop flourishing communities across Merseyside.
We give to a range of causes which enable individuals to make a real contribution to where they live, and where we as a grant-maker can add value and impact.
Our aim is to make Merseyside a better place to live.

Holt Educational Trust

The Holt Education Trust was established in 1915, as a memorial to Alfred and Philip Holt, founders of Ocean Steamship Company with an interest in higher education.

What we Fund

The PH Holt Foundation supports charities which aim to make Merseyside a better place to live, particularly smaller grass roots organisations that find it difficult to attract funds.
