We have a NEW website, please click HERE.

This is the old website for the Gibbons Family Trust and the David Gibbons Foundation.



Our two Charitable Trusts were established by David and Vera Gibbons to help people in Devon, and the Isle of Thanet in Kent.

The Trusts make grants to charities and not-for-profit organisations, as well as individuals.


The Gibbons Family Trust awards grants to children and young people up to the age of 25, living in Devon and / or the Isle of Thanet in Kent.  The Trust Deed states that those in East Devon are to be given preference.



The David Gibbons Foundation assists people living in Devon, and again the East Devon area is given priority.  This Trust helps those who are –

  • Living in financial hardship
  • Elderly
  • Physically or mentally unwell, disabled or affected by learning disabilities.

Quite often applicants meet more than one of these criteria.
