Our Charitable Fund

 
The Company of Management Consultants Charitable Fund

Our Charitable Fund (registered charity number 1059212) provides modest grant funding to non-profit organisations for initiatives meeting our funding criteria. It is administered by a Board of Trustees drawn from WCoMC; the Clerk of the Company is the Administrator of the Fund.

The objects of the Fund are drawn widely, but the Trustees have decided that the bulk of grant funding should be directed at initiatives where Members’ expertise and our funds can help to build sustainable capacity which will make a positive impact on social outcomes. A subsidiary focus for funding is on the development of the profession of management consulting. In both areas, the trustees will look favourably on applications which combine financial support with ProBono Assistance from Members of WCoMC.

Most grants are made to non-profit organisations in the UK, typically but not exclusively in Greater London and the South East, with a few made to UK-based organisations that operate internationally. The Fund has supported the Cass Centre for Charity Effectiveness at City University and the London Region of the Sea Cadets for some years, and expects to continue to do so in the future.

Grants made from the Fund are normally directed at defined projects or initiatives, and not for general support of operations or facilities. Funding will be considered for initiatives which meet some or all of the following criteria:

  • Aims to build sustainable capacity in the organisation – which can deliver public benefit in the long term
  • Can demonstrate positive social impact as a result, or at least put in place metrics to demonstrate such impact
  • Where appropriate, draws upon ProBono Consultancy or Mentoring Support from WCoMC members to help deliver the change
  • Aims to develop the management consulting profession

Scholarships and bursaries designed to further such initiatives may also be considered.

If you wish to apply for a grant, please download and complete our application form. You should, ideally, time your application to arrive at least a month before one of our quarterly Trustee Meetings, which usually fall in January, April, July and October. The precise dates can be viewed in our Company Calendar.
