Our package of support

Impetus-PEF provides a three-part package of management support, pro bono expertise and funding to help high-potential charities become more effective and to build their capacity – enabling them to make a lasting difference in the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

1. Hands-on management support

We provide hands-on management support to the chief executive and senior management of the charity through our highly experienced, in-house investment team. Impetus-PEF investment team members have substantial consulting, financial and voluntary sector experience, and their support spans the entire investment period.

2. Pro bono expertise

We have a pool of highly skilled experts, who volunteer their skills to our charities and social enterprises.

This expertise is deployed for specific, mutually agreed capacity-building activities, with the pro bono associate and investee organisation agreeing the brief before a project starts. Each project has a defined period of time and objective, to ensure results.

Example projects include:

  • Business model review and business planning
  • Financial planning and reporting
  • Development of performance measures
  • Senior management team coaching.

In 2016, firms and individuals in our pro bono network donated 6,000 hours to 100 projects for our portfolio charities.

3. Strategic funding

We give long-term core funding to our charities and social enterprises so they can improve their effectiveness and build their capacity. This funding is linked to the organisation meeting pre-agreed milestones, which are tracked on a quarterly basis.
