The Foundation was formed following the passing of my brother, Matthew Good, on June 26th 2011 whilst running a marathon for charity. He was the 6th generation to work in our family company John Good Group, which has been in business for over 185 years and is still family owned.
Our family business donates money to the Matthew Good Foundation each year allowing the staff of the John Good Group to apply and support many good causes in the UK and around the world.
Working in this way we make our impact highly efficient. We donate and work closely with small causes and local charities that need the most help. Every cause is hand picked by our staff and trustees which means we know exactly where the money is being spent.
For this reason we’re now starting to see a number of individual donors and other businesses granting money to our Foundation and delegating their philanthropy to our team.
