A line you hear very often in the world of trusts and foundations is that when you’ve met one foundation, you’ve met one foundation. This is particularly true of family foundations. We are organisations with personality, driven by the vision of our founders to make a positive difference in the world but this plays out in many different ways.
We spent a great deal of time thinking about how to communicate who we are and what we do and this website represents our efforts to articulate it in a way that feels authentic to us and our philanthropy.
The four key elements that make up the Pears brand of philanthropy are:
- Our work promoting engagement, understanding and wellbeing
- Our approach, summarised by our philosophy of ‘Commit, learn, refine’and Creating Spaces
- Our values: Passion, professionalism and integrity
- And the diverse range of partner organisations with whom we are privileged to work.
We hope you’ll enjoy exploring this website and learning more about them.
