Cause4

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Cause4 is a social enterprise launched in May 2009 to support charities, social enterprises and philanthropists in development and fundraising across the charity, arts, sports and educational sectors in the UK and internationally.
    Cause4 champions disruptive philanthropy and new ways of scaling up charities and social enterprises. Learning lessons from the private sector to benefit not-for-profit organisations, Cause4 helps attract the best graduate talent to work on some of the world’s most pressing issues. Provoking change is at the heart of our mission.
    A thriving corporate portfolio means that we are increasingly engaged to run CSR programmes for organisations such as Close Brothers, Axiom Law and Santander and to advise and lead the set up of Corporate Foundations.
    Since 2009 we have raised over £47 million for the clients with which we work and regularly raise over £500k charitable income per month.
    We work in three main areas: strategy, fundraising and social investment, philanthropy and enterprise development. We specialise in brokering and delivering effective partnerships and collaborations across the charitable sector.
