The Beacon Collaborative exists to encourage and celebrate philanthropy in the UK.
We work in close partnership with other organisations encouraging philanthropy, including New Philanthropy Capital, Philanthropy Impact, the Charities Aid Foundation, UK Community Foundations and The Philanthropy Workshop. We are steered by a philanthropists council, which allows the direct input of major donors to guide our work.
The renewed Beacon is supported by partners, including;
The Hazelhurst Trust is a private philanthropic trust that supports a variety of local causes, particularly resourceful groups in communities that want to become more self-reliant and sustainable. It also supports research into philanthropy and communities.
The Reekimlane Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) founded by Grant & Brigitte Gordon. Grant is a philanthropist and social entrepreneur. The Foundation’s giving is informed by a multi-generational family commitment to philanthropy. Their mission is to support local communities and society in general.
Pears Foundation is an independent, British family foundation, rooted in Jewish values, that takes £15 ‐ 20 million of private money every year and invests it in good causes. We promote understanding of key issues through research and education programmes; we drive engagement in social progress across the UK and globally, particularly in young people, and we support organisations focused on wellbeing for everyone, especially those with a tough challenge to face.
