Connecting CVC and the Community


To use the resources of CVC, including grants, employee involvement and access to our network, to make a measurable impact on the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the communities where we work.

CVC aims to be a catalyst for business and the non-profit sector to work together to benefit their communities. To do this, we have adopted an engaged philanthropy model. This involves contributing CVC's resources to support selected venture philanthropy groups, non-profit organisations and social enterprises across the network. We typically provide a package of support including funding, pro bono expertise and employee volunteering. We also work closely with portfolio companies to be a force for good in the communities where they operate.

In June 2011, CVC took its philanthropy programme to the next level through the establishment of the CVC Foundation. The CVC Foundation, administrered by the Charties Aid Foundation ("CAF"), is a grant-making institution and is managed by CVC employees with an independent Chairman.
