29th August, 2019

Cause4 is a social enterprise and one of the first certified B-Corporations in the UK. Recently, we profiled the firm to discover more about the extraordinary services the team consistently provides to ensure that the desired outcome is achieved.

Established in 2009, Cause4 supports charities, social enterprises and philanthropists in development and fundraising across the charity, arts, sport and education sectors. Today, Cause4 works tirelessly to achieve its aim of being a modernising influence and leader in the charity sector, offering contemporary solutions to national and smaller local charities, corporate foundations, philanthropists and social enterprises at a time when more creative, entrepreneurial approaches are much needed.

With a strong belief that the principles of development and fundraising go hand in hand, Cause4’s experience informs the team that the challenges surrounding income generation are often rooted in the development of effective policies, partnerships and programmes. As a result, the firm primarily focuses on innovation at an organisational, partnership and programme development level, in which successful fundraising can follow.

Working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the firm is able to offer these personalised services, is the innovative, talented and committed team which forms the backbone of Cause4. Cause4’s managers are not only great thinkers, but they also come up with practical day to day solutions to organisational challenges that can be immediately implemented.

"...the challenges surrounding income generation are often rooted in the development of effective policies, partnerships and programmes."

Since their inception, Cause4 has raised over a staggering £57m for their clients, and has also raised over £500k charitable income per month. Looking ahead to what the future holds for the firm, the team at Cause4 will continue to deliver an impeccable service, ensuring that it implements successful campaigns which improve and enrich the lives of people and communities in Britain and internationally.

Moving forward, the Cause4 team hope to further expand the business, their presence and the services they offer in the years to come.
