Social Business Trust, a charityoffering grands and professional expertise to the social enterprise sector, reveals today that for every pound it receives as a cash donation, they are able to increase this three-fold in the value of services they grant to social enterprises. For every £100,000 donated, SBT on average grants £300,000 to social enterprises, in cash and the very best professional support from its partners.
SBT will also announce, at a special celebration tonight, that the social enterprises it supports have positively affected the lives of 300,000 people in the last three years. SBT provides this in-depth support to its investees in partnership with seven of the country’s leading business– Bain & Co, British Gas, Clifford Chance, Credit Suisse, EY, Permira, and Thomson Reuters. The new analysis comes as SBT publishes its second impact report, and quantifies the amount of professional support it has been able to offer this financial year (to end of May 2014).
