The Clothworkers' Company has donated £750,000 to the Foundation to be used for Social Investment purposes. Social Investment is the use of repayable finance to help an organisation achieve a social purpose. It will provide the Foundation with a new tool to achieve its primary charitable object: to improve the lives of disadvantaged people and communities across the UK.
We are still in the early stages of our Social Investment journey but will announce new initiatives on this page in due course.
Social Investment initiatives:
- Stepping Stones Finance Facility: A partnership programme between City Bridge Trust, UBS and The Clothworkers' Foundation providing repayable finance to new enterprise activity at affordable rates.
- CAF Venturesome Development Fund: Providing social investment to build the capacity of high-impact social organisations.
