MHF has published three reports describing the evolution of its work. The first covering 1984 to 1989 and the second covering 1989 to 1996 are no longer available.

The third report ‘Funding Policy Change in the North East of England’ described its work from 1996 to 2004. The report laid out themes that are still fundamental to the Foundation’s grant-making, for example, the desire to make fewer larger grants, to concentrate on policy and campaigning, to work with those best able to develop policy that benefits the North East. Available as a PDF document.
