ELDON & ANNE FOOTE TRUST DONOR ADVISED PROGRAM

About the Eldon & Anne Foote Trust Donor Advised Program:

In 2000 Mr Eldon Foote and his wife Anne established the Eldon & Anne Foote Trust with the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation. Mr Foote was a successful Canadian lawyer, entrepreneur and businessman, and later a very generous philanthropist.

Today grants are made in the many areas of interest specified in the Foote Trust Deed of Gift. This includes grants from Mrs Foote’s Donor Advised Program. Under the Deed of Gift, the Board of the Foundation has the overall responsibility for final grantmaking decisions.

The Foundation recognises Mr Foote’s exceptional philanthropic spirit. His gift has enabled the Foundation to have a greater impact on community needs through grantmaking and through inspiring
others to also become philanthropists.
