Venture Partnership Foundation
Founded in 2004, the Venture Partnership Foundation (VPF) is a London-based collaborative of private and institutional funders joined together to support the UK's most innovative social entrepreneurs. We offer our chosen charities and social enterprises both business support and a range of unrestricted funding options, helping them expand their reach and create maximum impact.
The VPF looks for entrepreneurial charities at a crucial stage in their evolution, with high potential and the ability to scale rapidly. We filter them through a focused due diligence process, using carefully formulated selection criteria. A typical grant consists of £30,000 per year of unrestricted funding for three to five years and significant pro-bono advice, strategy expertise, and senior management mentoring from members and volunteers. This business support is often perceived by our social ventures to be of even greater value than the financial support they receive.
