Our Charitable Foundations
In 2016, we donated more than £18.5m to the Group’s four Foundations, which cover England & Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. Our contribution to the Foundations, which work independently from the Group, has enabled them to make grants to local, regional and national charities – most of which focus on support disadvantaged people during key transitions in their lives.
The grants provided by the Foundations are increasingly used to help charities become more efficient and more effective fundraisers on their own right. Our colleagues provide a resource from which the Foundations can draw on business skills that many charities require.
