Who we fund

The Sunrise Foundation will consider applications from Voluntary, Community & Charity organisations.

Voluntary, Community or Charity organisations are also known as ‘third sector’ organisations, as they are separate from the public and private sectors.  They are value-led organisations established for social purposes rather than the pursuit of profit and they reinvest surpluses to help tackle issues facing people and the planet.

Organisations that can apply

  • Registered and unregistered charities
  • Co-operatives
  • Friendly societies
  • Industrial and provident societies
  • Not-for-profit companies
  • Not-for-profit unincorporated associations

To apply, ALL voluntary, community and charity organisations must have the following

  • A written governing document (for example, a constitution, memorandum and articles of association, set of rules or trust deed).
  • At least three unrelated people on their board of directors (companies including community interest companies).
  • At least three unrelated trustees on their governing body (registered charities).
  • At least three unrelated people on their governing body (co-operatives, friendly societies, industrial and provident societies, unincorporated and unregistered not-for profit associations).

We expect organisations with a membership to be open to all and allow anyone to join, unless there is a good reason why this is not appropriate.

Applications from schools/organisations delivering school related activities or services

We welcome applications from schools or other educational establishments such as academies, but we will not pay for activities or services that schools have a statutory responsibility to provide, for example, curriculum based activities, or any activity taking place during curriculum time.  We expect projects to take place before or after school, during lunchtime or in the holidays unless you can provide us with a good reason in your application why this is not possible.

Health bodies

These include:

  • Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • NHS Hospital Trusts
  • Foundation Hospitals

Maggie Glastonbury

After enjoying bringing up two sons and working in education in Bristol, Maggie travelled to South America to engage in voluntary activity with children. This led to taking over the running of a UK charity working with disabled children in Urubamba, Peru.

Following this experience, she embarked upon a charity serving the same community, providing physiotherapy, psychological support and early stimulation to children, later expanding to include adults.

Currently Maggie travels between UK and Peru to oversee the operations there and develop the work of the foundation in Bristol.

Over the years she has been involved in a range of fundraising activities for many charities, most often running sponsored events.

She continues to spend time with her family and friends, enjoys exercise, salsa, travel, watching rugby and generally making the most of life.


Maggie is committed to trying to help others enjoy life to the full, regardless of disadvantages they face and hopes to do this through the Sunrise Foundation.
