Our Impact

Cause4 measures its social impact based on the level of income achieved for clients, and supporting organisations to grow so that they can reach more beneficiaries, more effectively. 

Our commitment to lifelong learning means that we also track the careers of the graduates we invest in and our staff. Our aim is for Cause4 to support individuals to go on to have brilliant careers in the charitable sector and beyond.

Tom Corley, whose list of best-selling books includes ‘Rich Habits’, ‘Change your Habits, Change your Life; and ‘Rich Habits, Poor Habits’, spent five years studying self-made millionaires.  What he found is that success couldn’t be attributed to a good start in life, loving support from family and friends or even hard work. Of course, all that helps, but the single biggest element that connected the successful people he met was their commitment to reading.  In fact, 86% of the successful people he met said they read - books, articles, blogs, journals.  And 63% listened to audiobooks during their daily commute.  But how can people seemingly as busy as Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama find time to sit down and read?  Welcome to the Five Hour Rule.

As an entrepreneur of a small growing business I often get asked how I find the energy to do what’s needed.

It’s not something I can answer easily and fundamentally it’s the wrong question.  As Cause4 is coming up to its tenth anniversary, having employed hundreds of staff and graduates, it’s clear that physical energy levels often aren’t the issue.  Like all SMEs, it’s more likely that mental health is the area that needs our focus.  A truly sustainable business is one that prioritises mental health.
