ACF commissioned this Guide to Good Practice for Corporate Foundations to show ways in which corporate foundations work and to highlight examples of good practice. It brings together the collective expertise of many contributors, and was informed by a series of interviews with leading figures from UK corporate foundations. This Guide is written to assist both those already funding or operating a corporate foundation and those considering doing so.

We are especially grateful to The Santander Foundation and the Zurich Community Trust for their financial support, without which this publication would not have been possible. 

Also available in the Good Practice Guide for Corporate Foundations series are the four booklets:

  • starting out;
  • good governance;
  • staff matters;
  • public face and image

The four booklet series is available from ACF, price £10 for the set of four, or £3 each. Multiple copies are available at a much reduced rate – please enquire from ACF. Email for further details.

We support UK foundations and grant-making charities
