Our aim is to improve the lives of people and their communities, across the UK. We look to do this by encouraging and developing leadership and promoting enterprise and innovation.
The Rank Foundation supports a number of small and major programmes across the UK. In the majority of cases, these programmes are funded through our proactive, research driven activities.
The Rank Foundation operates a model of engaged philanthropy, combining intellectual, social and financial capital in order to maximise impact, whilst leveraging additional funding and support:
- Financial Capital: flexible funding, long term support
- Intellectual Capital: sharing good practice, bursaries, education & training
- Social Capital: networking through RankNet and our Fellowship
Our experience suggests that by concentrating funding, knowledge and expertise in a very focused way, promoting stronger partnerships and increased collaboration, helps to ‘add value’ where the outcome is greater than the sum of each part.
