Setting up a charity connected to your business is a great way to amplify your company’s positive impact. We have done this ourselves (the Bates Wells Foundation works to support sustainable social change), and over the years we’ve helped numerous businesses – from SMEs to global corporations – to set up and manage their foundations.

In this guide we set out the main things that businesses should think about, including the alternatives to setting up a corporate foundation. We hope that the guide will answer some of your questions or at least help you to ask your lawyers the right questions.

If you’re thinking about setting up a corporate foundation, we’d be delighted to have an initial chat with you about it.
