Friends Provident Foundation is an independent charity that makes grants and uses its endowment towards a fair and sustainable economic system that serves people and planet. We connect, fund, support and invest in new thinking to shape a future economy that works for all.
We work through grant-giving, investment, sharing what we have learned and convening events.
Our grant programme, Developing a Fair Economy, works on two levels - Systems Change and Local Economies. Trustees make all grant decisions, supported by a small staff team.
The Foundation also uses its endowment to pursue its aims by leveraging its endowment of £34m to engage with companies and investment managers, alongside a portfolio of mission-related investments. We have a full-time investment engagement manager and are at the forefront of impact investment in the UK.
