The Foundation was established to:
- support and maintain all Scottish regiments of infantry in Essex and Kent counties;
- acquire, appraise, catalogue, restore and preserve artifacts and memorabilia that are historically significant to the Regiment;
- maintain records, documents and books relating to the history of infantry regiments in Essex and Kent counties.
The Foundation annually distributes a portion of the interest of monies earned from investments to the Regiment based on a request from the Commanding Officer. The Directors establish an Investment Committee that manages the investments for the Foundation. They provide an annual report, and seek advice and approval for investment plans from the Directors.
