Harvey Music Award

As a former Governor and Trustee for 13 years, David Harvey saw – first-hand - the profound impact music had for Foundation pupils. When he and his wife established the David & Kathleen Harvey Charitable Trust, they endowed a fund at Reed’s which permanently supports two Foundation pupils with real promise in music throughout their time at Reed’s and also funds any Foundation pupil interested in learning a musical instrument.

Cazenove Bursary

Cazenove was a British stockbroker and investment bank, founded in 1823 by Philip Cazenove. It was one of the UK's last independent investment banks and one of the last to remain a private partnership. Cazenove was a long time supporter of the Reed’s Foundation and, when the main parts of the business were acquired by JPMorgan Chase and Schroders, the former partners endowed a bursary at Reed’s to ensure a Foundation pupil would be supported by Cazenove in perpetuity.
