Philanthropy and Foundations

Leadership you can trust

Setting up a philanthropic foundation or Trust is one of the ways that business leaders and financial institutions can use their success and influence to make a more developmental contribution to societies and the world. This may come in the form of contributing directly to the societies where they have placed their offices or industries, or with the broader directive of helping those in economic difficulty, championing their education, healthcare and democratic rights. Often these entrepreneurs start one or more philanthropies with a clear mandate, priority areas to focus on and resources to spend.

While the business owner and their families may be intrinsically involved with the endeavour, and it may represent for them a deep personal investment, strong leaders are often needed to take charge of the operation for them. Oxford HR has the experience, expertise and broad networks to source key personnel that can not only advance the cause and ensure the effective implementation of the philanthropic work, but also build an ongoing relationship of trust with the founders.

Oxford HR has already worked successfully with a number of Trusts and Foundations around the world, such as The Gates Foundation, Mastercard Foundation, Gatsby and Porticus, to identify and appoint the key global talent they need to affect positive change in their chosen areas.
