The RPD Foundation

About us

The RPD Foundation aims to advise and support charities and not-for-profit organisations (at any stage of their development) with financial know-how, strategy, governance, and controls.  As an entity in its own right, the Foundation also helps with choosing suitable operating models and with business development and fundraising. 

Through its own fundraising activities, the Foundation aims to deliver education and training. It also aims to realise aspirations of awarding grants to those that would not otherwise have access to this level of support for the Voluntary Sector.

The RPD Foundation provides a valuable vehicle to drive partners’ charitable ambitions. Examples include; managing the RPD team’s fundraising activities, promoting Corporate Social Responsibility, advising businesses and individuals on charitable giving, and encouraging employees to participate in voluntary work.

“A lasting impact of Covid has been the number of people that want or need help, and so many organisations are prepared to give it. The problem is making sure they can find each other with all the “noise” about. This project will be so valuable to so many.”

"A huge challenge facing Sussex will be the large number of people who have or will lose their jobs as a result of the pandemic. We hope the RPD Foundation will be able to help a number of these find new outlets for their skills and The Boltini Trust is delighted to help them achieve this.”
