EQ Foundation is a registered charitable institution that has donated over £1,000,000 since 2015 to registered charities. Further details here
Please note that we are not currently accepting unsolicited applications for funding as we are concentrating on our existing relationships.
We have also developed a number of initiatives as part of our mission to help people identify the most effective charities.
Giving is Great
We want to help individual donors make better decisions about their giving. In our experience, most people give money reactively, in response to an ‘ask’ and never really feel comfortable with their decision. So we’ve looked at some of the principles that work when selecting investments to provide a basis for making better selections.
Another is to look for charities that have won awards, or those that are growing strongly.

We’ve gathered data from several sources including the UK Charities Commission covering all registered charities and 360 Giving for details of major donations to allow you to see who is being supported and by whom. You can tailor your search based on the number of different donors they have attracted and by their size
We are now developing a donation platform that will allow people to make modest sized, regular donations to charities that we have analysed and found to be effective. Further details here.
