The Winston Churchill Charitable Foundation was established on the initiative of the world community in 1954 after receiving Nobel Prize on literature, he invested part of the funds in the development fund. His wife, Clementine Churchill herself contributed the first installment to the fund. And it prompted the members of the British government to do it. The largest amount of humanitarian aid was provided through the Foundation for Assistance to the British Red Cross Society and the Order of St. John in Jerusalem.

Throughout the world, because of the lack of early diagnosis, disease of different species and degrees is only detected in the late stages. Even this did not prevent our fund and other organizations from making a sharp jump up: 70% of the cases are curable.

It is financed by voluntary donations, which are made by anyone, including the states-participants of the Geneva Conventions (governments), national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, interstate charitable organizations, as well as public and private structures. At the end of each year, a fund-raising campaign is being carried out to finance both headquarters activities and field operations. Operational, statistical and financial information on the use of funds is reflected in the annual report of the organization.

The "Winston Churchill Charitable Foundation" was created to effectively provide comprehensive targeted assistance to fellow citizens who found themselves in difficult life situations, provide treatment, preventive maintenance, as well as material and spiritual assistance, to promote the development of new methods for diagnosis and treatment of diseases worldwide and Raising public awareness of cancer problems and measures for cancer prevention, assisting medical institutions in treating patients with various diseases and improving their conditions in medical institutions of the world.

Over time, the circle of our wards has expanded, and the fund began to help in the whole world, having the need for assistance from 4 programs.

The main goal of the fund is to provide comprehensive assistance to all needy, hospitals around the world, support and assistance to the international Red Cross. We pay bills related to medical treatment, assistance with humanitarian aid, helping children, fighting poverty, which do not cover the financing of the assistance of other funds around the world, and promote the development of other funds, and we also help them.


In order to develop grant strategies for the Fund, the Fund's program staff conduct extensive research to identify gaps or needs in the areas they support for their needs. Typically, this research leads to the development of a grant "initiative" that supports a set of relevant grants that promote a specific goal. After the development of the initiative, grants are provided to the Fund in various ways, including invitations initiated by the fund for application, using the "DONATE" button, which are executed using request-request processes. Sometimes the foundation also supports opportunistic grants, which are more broadly related to program missions.
