“Philanthropy is not about the money. It’s about using whatever resources you have at your fingertips and applying them to improving the world.”                                                                                                            - Melinda Gates

Businesses do not operate in vacuums, we work in and owe it to our communities to use our available resources, whether knowledge, time, experience or money to help them grow. 

Through a series of projects the gunnercooke foundation aims to help third sector leaders to grow through inspire, give volunteering opportunities through infuse and help social businesses develop through invest. 

Our portfolio of projects (below) gives a wide range of opportunities for those in business to get involved but also huge opportunity for charitable organisations to take advantage of what we have to offer.


We have big plans for the gunnercooke foundation and hope you will join us for the journey.
