The Roald Dahl Charitable Trust

Both Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity and our sister charity, the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, are generously supported by the Dahl family.

The Dahl family donate 10% of Roald Dahl's author royalties via the Roald Dahl Charitable Trust to be shared between the two charities.

The Burdett Trust for Nursing

Thanks to vital funds from our friends at the Burdett Trust for Nursing, we support innovative nurse-led research projects. This programme is called the Marvellous Nurse Inventing Room.

Our aim is to improve the quality of care for seriously ill children and young people. The programme also helps to improve skills in leadership, research and project management for nurses in the UK.


Roald Dahl was passionate about children reading for pleasure, that's why he was Chairman of Readathon until 1990.

Readathon is the UK's national sponsored reading event. As well as getting children reading, Readathon raises money for charity, including Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.  

Readathon have been a long-standing and loyal supporter, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to help seriously ill children since 1991. We are extremely grateful to Readathon, and all the schools who have taken part.

Schools which take part in Readathon receive free books for their school, inspiring even more children to discover their own love of reading.

Music Link International

Music Link International is an exciting arts organisation dedicated to new music, drama and audiences. Music Link International is closely involved with the artistic management of a series of works based on Roald Dahl's stories, with the aim to welcome new generations into both concert hall and opera house. The school musicals based on Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes draw upon these original orchestral/ensemble works and operas. 

Written by some of the greatest living composers, these works have been performed to, and by, huge audiences of children around the world. 

We are delighted that Music Link International introduces children and adults to the pleasures of orchestral music. We are also very grateful that the proceeds from these music commissions are kindly donated to Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.
