Our people

About Us, Our People

We are run by a small team of staff and a board of trustees.
They receive fantastic support from a group of volunteer Reps who work for the Berkeley Group.



What Berkeley can bring is not just money, but access to work - we have a labour force of 11,000 people.
Rob Perrins, Chairman of the 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 we do occasionally receive external donations. The Berkeley Group matches everything they raise, pound for pound.
