Making an impact

Since the Foundation was established in 2011, we have worked with hundreds of charitable organisations and empowered hundreds of our members to deliver nearly £1m of funding to projects that positively impact people, society and the natural world.

Why we’re here

Amplifying small charities

We know that new, small and local charities are often able to make a huge impact with a small grant, but many are currently going under the radar of the funding organisations they need help from. This desire to fill the funding gap for smaller charities is why we started our “amplify fund”, to help target giving where it makes the most impact.

Empowering businesses and individuals

So many businesses and individuals have a desire to make a difference by supporting high-impact charities in their communities – but do not have the connections, resource or experience to be able to confidently act on it. So, we invite other like-minded businesses and individuals to let us help them meet their unique goals, building a powerful philanthropic community capable of amplifying more small charities.

UNSDGs

In 2015, all United Nations members adopted “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, which provided a blueprint for achieving a more sustainable future for all, with 16 goals to meet. The goals address all the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Due to the diverse nature of the Foundation, we support charities that are collectively working towards all of the goals, where we can, we strategically target the following:

No Poverty
Good Health and Well-being
Zero Hunger
Quality Education
Reduced Inequalities
Life Below Water
Climate Action
Life on Land
No Poverty
Reduced Inequalities

Annual Reviews

To demonstrate our impact, every year we produce an annual review, illustrating our financial impact in an easily digestible form, recapping our major achievements, and highlighting many the causes we have been able to support throughout the year.

As a registered charity, our full annual financial reports can also be found on the Charity Commission website.
