Who We Are

For over 140 years Glasgow Care Foundation have been assisting families and individuals in Glasgow who cannot get help from any other agency with basic household goods. We also support local community projects, holidays for families and distribute toys and food vouchers at Christmas.

We act as Trustee for some 13 smaller charities and our income comes from capital investments made in earlier years, bequests, legacies and donations. We do not receive any funding from local or national government.

Due to the economic climate the demand for help is ever increasing. If you or your company are considering ‘Adopting a Charity’ or organising any fund raising events we would very much appreciate you considering the Glasgow Care Foundation as a potential beneficiary.

A simple thank you seems inadequate for all the support that Glasgow Care Foundation has given my families over the years I have worked for Geeza Break.  Behind the scenes are a dedicated team that work tirelessly to ensure that the most vulnerable families are awarded much needed items such as beds and mattresses.  Glasgow Care Foundation has been instrumental in improving the health and wellbeing of many families.
