The Prince's Drawing SchoolThe aim of the Prince’s Drawing School is to raise the standard and profile of drawing through teaching and practise. It is one of only a few institutions in the world offering in-depth, quality tuition for those who wish to develop their observational drawing skills.
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, the school provides art instruction to anyone wishing to learn to draw, regardless of background, through a range of affordable programmes with flexible schedules and locations.
British Academy of Film and Television ArtsThe British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) supports, promotes and develops the art forms of the moving image - film, television and video games - by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public.
As the leading charity in the UK supporting the art forms of the moving image, BAFTA ensures that the very best creative work can be accessed and appreciated by the public.
amfAR: Making AIDS HistoryWith the freedom and flexibility to respond quickly to emerging areas of scientific promise, amfAR plays a catalytic role in accelerating the pace of HIV/AIDS research and achieving real breakthroughs. amfAR-funded research has increased our understanding of HIV and has helped lay the groundwork for major advances in the study and treatment of HIV/AIDS. Since 1985, amfAR has invested more than $340 million in its mission and has awarded grants to more than 2,000 research teams worldwide.
Founded in 1985, amfAR is dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research.
Elton John Aids FoundationThe Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) was established in the United States in 1992 by Sir Elton John. EJAF's U.S. office is located in New York City. In 1993, Sir Elton also established the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF-UK) in the United Kingdom, headquartered in London.
These two organizations function as separate entities with their own distinct grant-making portfolios, but both pursue similar missions - to support innovative HIV prevention programs, efforts to eliminate stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS, and direct care and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
British Red CrossThe British Red Cross is a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.
They enable vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities.
And when the crisis is over, they help people recover and move on with their lives.
