The Berkeley Foundation was established
We are run by a small team of staff and a board of trustees.
They receive fantastic support from a group of volunteer Foundation Champions who work for the Berkeley Group.
"Above all, we want to have the deepest possible impact on our local communities. We work hard to understand and measure the impact of our work, and we're constantly learning about how best to approach these highly complex social issues."
Rob Perrins, Chairman of Berkeley Foundation
How we're funded
The Berkeley Foundation receives funding from two main sources. The Berkeley Group provides 'core funding', pays all of our overheads and covers the cost of specific fundraising events. Berkeley staff do a fantastic job of raising money through fundraising events and Give As You Earn, and the Berkeley Group matches everything they raise, pound for pound. Finally, we occasionally receive external donations.
Transparency is important to us.
