The Lily Mae Foundation makes grants of up to £1,000 available to Medical Research/Projects in areas associated with Stillbirth and Neonatal Death. We also make grants to other Charitable Organisations having similar objects to ourselves and to other Charitable Children’s Organisations.
These guidelines are designed to enable you to decide if your Research/Project may be eligible for an award.
At The Lily Mae Foundation we have always tried to find ways of putting something back into the community following the stillbirth of Lily Mae Jackson in February 2010.
We aim to achieve a balanced approach in our relationships with the Medical Profession, other charities and charitable children’s organisations and the affect that this will have on bereaved parents and their families and friends who have suffered a Stillbirth or Neonatal Death.
The Lily Mae Foundation Grant is the embodiment of this approach – the combination of Donations and Fundraising activities allows us to provide help for the benefit of bereaved parents and their families. It is an approach, which involves the charities trustees determining how funds are allocated. The Trustees represent a broad spread of interests in the West Midlands and Warwickshire area and use their local knowledge to ensure the money is used to maximum benefit.
The Lily Mae Foundation Grant enables us to invest in a range of Research/Projects designed to promote and assist in research and the implementation of best practice to identify the causes and help reduce the incidence of the death of a baby in the uterus, at birth or soon after birth. The grant also enables us to work collaboratively to improve and enhance professional practice with health and social care professionals for the benefit of bereaved parents and their families. It also allows us to offer support and assistance to other charitable organisations and charitable children’s organisations having similar objects as the charity that the trustees shall at their discretion deem suitable.
The Lily Mae Foundation Grant will support research/projects in any of the following four criteria areas:
The advancement of health or the saving of lives
Promoting psychological, emotional and physical well-being of parents, their families and friends when a baby dies in the uterus, at birth or soon after birth
Raising awareness of Stillbirth and Neonatal Death through education, training and community projects
Working to improve and enhance professional practice with health and social care professionals for the benefit of bereaved parents and their families.
The Lily Mae Foundation is a registered charity – 1149341 and is operated by ten trustees who decide on how funds will be allocated based on the criteria and guidelines attached to this page.
