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. The Berkeley Group also has a match funding scheme in place to match fundraising and volunteering. Finally, we occasionally receive external donations. Transparency is important to us. You can find our audited accounts here.
