Who We Are
Established by Ramesh and Pratibha Sachdev in 2006, GMSP is a family foundation that supports strong frontline organisations working to improve the lives of people in the UK and India.
GMSP Foundation is led by Ramesh and Pratibha’s daughter Sonal Sachdev Patel. Our approach to grantmaking is informed by the same values that guide our family: trust, love and humility, and a sense of shared humanity that connects us all.
The organisations GMSP supports serve their communities with bravery and imagination every day. We hold ourselves to the same standard, aspiring to a bolder, more thoughtful approach to our own philanthropy.
Since 2006, we have given more than £13M to local organisations and other charitable initiatives.
Our local partners work to tackle deeply embedded social problems like hunger, homelessness and domestic violence, and to support the health and economic empowerment of marginalised groups. We also make grants to a smaller number of intermediaries, who bring their local and thematic insight to deepen the reach of our giving.
