Making Dreams Come True

The Furnley House Foundation

At Furnley House we recognise and appreciate the privileged position we are in. We have employment, good health, a social community and a roof over our heads. And at the same time, we also recognise that many others are not so fortunate.

Furnley House was founded out of a need to make financial planning more accessible to those who need it the most. And that ethos, of being here to make a difference, has never left us. That is why we formed The Furnley House Foundation. It’s our way of giving back.

The aim of the foundation is simple: to help improve the lives of as many people as we can. Of course, that is a very broad aim. Specifically, we want to help those within our community. We want to help causes that our close to our clients and our staff. And we also want to help both registered charities and community projects.

In 2018 we raised in excess of £40,000 which was donated to Alex’s Wish which was set-up to eradicate Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys born.
             
In 2019 we’ll be continuing to support Alex’s Wish and will also be supporting The Campaign Against Living Miserably – CALM which is leading a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.

As well as supporting such causes, we are also looking to give grants from the foundation to local community projects within the areas we operate, and so invite applications from local initiatives. Read more about the Furnley House Foundation grants.

We would also love your involvement in our activities. To find out how you can get involved, please check out our events page.
