The Jo Walters Trust provides opportunities to help people enrich their lives and the lives of others, through sport, outward bound, educational and environmental projects, both at home and abroad.
The Jo Walters Trust was set up in memory of Joanna Walters, a young teacher who was killed while cycling in Brighton in 2010. Read more about her life and why she inspired us to start the trust here.
The Trust has given grants to a wide range of individuals and charities, covering areas such as outward bound, maths education, cycle safety, in areas from Aberdeenshire to Madagascar. Read more about the grants we've made to date here.
There are no salaried employees so the vast majority of all donations is spent funding projects.

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
