Below is a list of our generous supporters, without whom we would be unable to carry out our work to improve impact. The below is not an exhaustive list; we also benefit from a number of donations from generous individual supporters. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our supporters and partners.

OakNorth Bank

Launched in September 2015, OakNorth is a UK bank that provides fast, flexible and accessible debt finance (from £500k to £25m) to fast-growth businesses and established property developers. Since its launch, the bank has grown its loan book to over £900m with clients including: LEON, Brasserie Blanc, Z Hotels, Galliard, Frogmore, Notes, Adventure Bar, Pocket Living, and The Collective. The bank was founded by Rishi Khosla and Joel Perlman, themselves entrepreneurs who were inspired to launch it following the challenges they faced in securing debt finance from high street banks for their previous business, Copal Amba (which scaled to c.3,000 employees and was acquired by Moody’s Corporation in 2014).

University of Chicago Booth School of Business

Since 1898 the University of Chicago Booth School of Business has produced ideas and leaders that shape the world of business. A research-led school, Chicago Booth was the first school to originate the study of modern finance, develop the concept of social capital and redefine the science of the stock market. Its faculty include some of the most influential thinkers of today including 2017 Nobel Laureate and “father of behavioural economics”, Professor Richard Thaler. Professor Thaler’s Nobel Prize is the 8th awarded to Chicago Booth.

Named after alumnus David Booth, it is the second oldest business school in the United States and the first to create an Executive MBA programme in 1943. We teach the full-time, part-time, Executive MBA programmes and custom non-degree courses (open and custom programmes) across three campuses in London, Hong Kong and Chicago. The London campus has been serving Europe, Middle East and Africa for more than 20 years and has graduated thousands of students from industries ranging from banking and finance, technology, healthcare to telecommunications and energy.


HelpForce

HelpForce is a new Community Interest Company founded in 2017 and led by Sir Thomas Hughes-Hallett. 

There is an urgent need for volunteers to play a greater role in supporting NHS staff so that staff can focus more of their time providing expert medical care. Well managed staff-volunteer teams can substantially improve patient care in hospitals but while there are some brilliant examples across the NHS, these are not joined up and volunteering is rarely integrated into NHS delivery plans.

We are working with pioneers in NHS Trusts and the voluntary sector to improve volunteering practice and perceptions across the UK.
