The Koestler Awards exist thanks to voluntary donations from businesses, trusts and foundations, individuals and gifts in wills. With your help, we can inspire ambition and hope in more men, women and young people in the criminal justice system.
To achieve our goals we rely on the generosity of our supporters and donors.
We would like to thank all individuals, organisations, businesses, trusts, and foundations who support and contribute to our work, and are grateful to Arts Council England, HMPPS, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust, The Monument Trust, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and 29th May 1961 Charitable Trust for their endorsement of our work.
Your help allows us to reach and motivate some of society’s most marginalised individuals, providing focus and a chance to celebrate positive achievements.
“Without Koestler I would have had nothing in prison to show me that I can change, and make a new future for myself. Hearing people say positive things about my work is a new experience and drives me to keep trying.”
– Koestler Awards entrant, HM Prison Wymott
