An enterprising charitable trust funded by a British family business making an impact at home and abroad
What we do
The Matthew Good Foundation was created to support John Good Group employees in making a difference to good causes close to their hearts. Since 2011, we have donated more than £450,000 to good causes in the UK and abroad.
Grants for Good
Our first fund that invites charities, community interest companies and social entrepreneurs to apply to us directly for funding.
Members and their immediate family members can apply for up to £2,000 in double match funding when they raise funds for charity.
Members can nominate small charities or local initiatives to receive a Championing Grant up to £500; or £1,000 if they volunteer for the cause.
For members that choose to donate their own money to charity, we match their charitable donations up to a maximum value of £2,000.
A Grassroots application allows members to directly support an issue, cause or project that they are passionate about by starting their own project
