§ Mr. Waldegrave
A list of charitable donations made by the Duchy over the last five years would run to several hundred items.
Donations made from the duchy benevolent fund during the last five years are as follows:
£ 1987 61,063 1988 81,122 1989 99,805 1990 119,124 1991 129,653 1992 178,814 1Up to 30 June 1992.
The duchy's policy has been not to reveal the identity of a recipient or the amount given. This is the usual policy of charitable foundations. However, the duchy would of course have no objection to a recipient giving this information.
Substantial amounts have been given to educational establishments, including universities, in the county palatine; to ecclesiastical causes, to the elderly and infirm and various youth projects.
Many small donations have also been made, usually after seeking local advice, to individuals or to causes worthy of assistance.
