Grant making is more than a gift to charity; it's an opportunity to create wider value and drive social change

By taking a strategic approach to grant making, we believe businesses can make an important contribution, demonstrate their social purpose to customers and employees and generate business-aligned social impact.

We offer best in class grant making based on three core principles:

  • Alignment with your business strategy – enabling you to deliver your local community's ambition, reflecting what is material to you and your stakeholders.
  • Beneficiary focus – focusing on a positive experience with impact for the organisations you fund and their end beneficiaries.
  • Partnership – aiming for a shared purpose, enterprise and innovation, building your combined capacity to maximise your social impact.
