The Clare Foundation is a charity that helps other charities increase their social impact through improved efficiency and effectiveness.

Founded 2009

  • Mission statement

    The Clare Foundation is a registered UK charity that helps other charities increase their social impact through improved efficiency and effectiveness. The Foundation takes established commercial methods, business expertise and entrepreneurism to the voluntary sector through training, mentoring, sharing best practice and networking at its "Charity Hub" in Buckinghamshire.

    The Foundation acquired the Saunderton Estate, to become its 'Charity Hub' - a centre of 'Charity Excellence' - for local charities based in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire. Tenant charities benefit from subsidised office accommodation, conference and meeting facilities, and shared services in a collaborative community. Some of these services, in particular the conference and meeting facilities, are open to non-tenant affiliated voluntary and commercial organisations.

    This innovative concept has been universally welcomed by Charity leaders, Local Government and Business organisations. It offers huge opportunities for the Third Sector throughout the Chilterns, the Thames Valley and beyond.
