Business Philanthropy Club
The Business Philanthropy Club is the business philanthropy club for Berkshire; a vehicle for businesses to give effective and targeted funding to grassroots organisations and projects in their local communities.

Business Philanthropy Club members have come together to make a real, positive difference within Berkshire.  Members get the opportunity to not only support local charities but also to collaborate with other key business leaders to create tangible business opportunities.

  • It is ongoing, efficient and hassle free.
  • There is a portfolio of support covering immediate, sustainable and development activities.
  • It allows you to gain access to hundreds of local charities and worthwhile causes that really need your help.
  • It gives you the ability to direct all requests for charitable help to the Foundation thus freeing up your company’s admin resources and reducing costs.
  • It provides you the opportunity to attend key dinners with business leaders as well as ‘Seeing is Believing’ visits to meet the people you have helped.
