In order to make better decisions about our grant making, we commissioned a series of reports from New Philanthropy Capital to identify some of the priority needs and some of the solutions that could make an impact.

The RS Macdonald Charitable Trust is able to support charities that provide care and welfare for people who are blind or visually impaired. The number of people affected by sight loss will double by 2031 and it is vitally important to consider how they can be best supported.
