Corporate foundations network meeting

Corporate foundations spotlight series. Following the successful Spotlight Sessions we have hosted earlier in the year we are delighted to share details of the next Corporate Foundations network meeting. It promises to be another engaging and insightful look two different Corporate Foundations - it’s not too late to sign up!

He is hugely passionate about the sector and has over 14 years’ experience in charity leadership and philanthropy.  He was previously Deputy Director at the DHL UK Foundation and has worked for leading charities including The Princes Trust, NSPCC and Teenage Cancer Trust.

 

Kay Cameron, Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales

Kay is co-convenor of the Corporate Foundations Network. As Skills Volunteering Lead for Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales, she works closely with Lloyds Banking Group, designing and delivering a range of initiatives linking Lloyds Banking Group colleagues with charities supported by the Foundation. Kay has longstanding experience of working within the voluntary sector and has expertise in setting up and managing volunteering and grant making programmes. 

We will be joined by two leading Corporate Foundations, who will be sharing an insight into how each Corporate Foundation operates – including their structure, mission, governance, reach and proudest achievements. 

There will be an opportunity to ask questions, reflect on the two different Foundations and explore the biggest commonalities and differences with your own organisation in break out groups.  It is also a valuable networking opportunity. 

Speakers:

Leigh Pearce, Chief Executive, Nationwide Foundation
Leigh joined the Nationwide Foundation, an independent charitable foundation, in 2006 and became its chief executive in 2014. Leigh has guided the Foundation in developing an evidence based and systems focussed approach to addressing the lack of decent affordable homes in the UK.  Not afraid to take on some of the most entrenched social issues and problems that often end up on the ‘too hard to do’ pile, Leigh has led the Foundation to take a long-term approach and use its funding, its knowledge and its position to influence changes to the housing system to increase the availability of decent, affordable homes for people in need.
She is a member of the Women Leaders in Corporate Foundations network, chairs the Community-Led Housing Fund, is an active member of the Association of Charitable Foundations and has written about ‘Lessons in Leadership’  https://www.acf.org.uk/news/lessons-in-leadership-nationwide-foundation
