About The Beacon Collaborative
The Beacon Collaborative is a collective impact movement bringing together philanthropists, organisations and foundations that share a common aspiration to increase philanthropy and social investment among the wealthy in the UK.
The mechanism is a collective work plan of activities aimed at encouraging wealthy individuals to use more of their private assets for public good.
The Collaborative partners currently include UK Community Foundations, Charities Aid Foundation, New Philanthropy Capital, Association of Charitable Foundations, Institute of Fundraising, Big Society Capital, Philanthropy Impact, The Philanthropy Workshop, Barclays Private Bank, Ernst & Young, Pears Foundation, Reekimlane Foundation, Hazelhurst Trust, Arts Council England and The City Bridge Trust.
The goal is to attract £2 billion more in donations to good causes and social investment by 2025.
2020 is well underway and so are plans for the Philanthropy and Social Investment Meeting of Minds at the Guildhall, London on 25th March 2020.
