The Fisher Foundation has been established by Fisher Engineering as a permanent memorial to the lives of Bertie, Mark and Emma Fisher who died following an air accident on the 21st January 2001. It seeks to commemorate Bertie and Mark's interest in rallying and Emma's commitment to Christian service overseas by supporting those involved in these areas today.

2. Development of Motor Sport Safety Initiatives
Support to motor clubs and other relevant organisations to improve safety standards on rally events.
Following a review of grant making the Trustees are proposing to award a significant grant in 2017 to a motor sport safety initiative (this initiative has already been identified). The Trustees have therefore agreed that all the grant money available for motor sport safety in 2016 and 2017 will be designated to this new development.
We therefore will not be be inviting applications over the coming period. New developments will be announced later in 2017.
