We aim to maximise our philanthropic impact by focusing on projects and people that offer leveraged, sustainable solutions to social issues or problems that might otherwise be overlooked.

Our philanthropic model moves beyond traditional project-based funding and seeks to add real value, over and above the financial support we provide. In identifying a potential philanthropic partner, we typically look for:

  • Sound leadership: We back people as much as projects.
  • Leverage: We are excited by initiatives that will have a significant ‘ripple effect’ beyond the funding/project cycle.
  • Sustainability: We favour projects which incorporate sustainability into their operating model.
  • Collaboration: We embrace the opportunity to work with others to achieve a common goal.
