Purpose and Activities

The mission of the W.L.S. Spencer Foundation is to fund activities, anywhere in the world, which foster new ideas, disrupt the status quo and encourage creativity in the fields of education, the arts, healthcare and the environment. We like the leverage that arises from seed grants, challenge grants and matching grants. We prefer not to fund endowments, operating expenses or ongoing projects. At this time, grant applications are by invitation only.
