In this brand new free report, we publish findings from our research into 20 of the most well known corporate foundations in the UK.
Some key findings:
- In general, corporate foundations get the highest proportion of their incoming resources from their founding company, but this varies greatly depending on the foundation.
- Over half of the 20 foundations we investigated receive over 50% of their incoming resources in the form of financial gifts from their founding company.
- Around ¼ of the foundations receive donations from the public as part of their incoming resources.
- A few of the foundations receive income from sales of merchandise by the founding store. For a few, this makes up a small part of their incoming resources, however the John Lewis Foundation recieves 98% of its incoming resources this way.
- A few of the foundations receive some income from staff fundraising.
- In general, corporate foundations are spending near to or over 100% of their incoming resources on charitable giving.
