Bridges Impact Foundation Annual Report 2020/21
The Bridges Impact Foundation Annual Report 2020/21 showcases some of the important work our philanthropic arm has been doing over the last twelve months, in the face of the unprecedented challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Key highlights included:
- Raising over £38,000 for charities operating on the front-line of the Covid-19 pandemic
- Providing financial and pro bono support to The Difference, a specialised teacher training programme that aims to support vulnerable children and reduce the number of children that are excluded from schools
- Creating systemic impact via the Bridges Social Entrepreneurs Fund (SEF) – which came to an end this year having supported 30 VCSEs and pioneered an investment model that has since been widely adopted
The Bridges Impact Foundation is funded primarily by the Bridges team, who donate 10% of all their profits from the firm’s investment funds. Through its core areas of venture philanthropy, seed-funding and market-building, and by harnessing and amplifying the philanthropic efforts of the Bridges team, the Foundation aims to provide catalytic support for innovative solutions that drive better outcomes for underserved people and the planet.
