Marit and Hans Rausing Fund

Professor Hans Rausing, who lives in Wadhurst, East Sussex is the former Chairman and Chief Executive of Tetra Laval, the company which developed and produced the Tetra Pak drinks carton. The Rausing family are generous supporters of charities and of education nationally and internationally and have supported a wide range of charitable causes in Sussex and Kent for many years. In 2006, Professor and Mrs Hans Rausing set up our first Named Fund to manage their local giving through the Foundation. They have continued to donate generously since then and have given over 220 grants worth well over £600,000.

The Burgess Hill Boys Club Young Carers Project (above) received a grant of £4,350 from the Marit and Hans Rausing Fund to organise nine fun days for young carers. You can read more about them here

 Other groups funded recently include Exploring Senses and Gladrags Community Costume Resource, both based in Brighton & Hove.
