The PressPad Charitable Foundation is an organisation founded in February 2021 to improve social mobility in the media.
We created this organisation to work alongside, and not in place of, the pre-existing social enterprise PressPad Ltd founded by Olivia Crellin in 2018.
It was following great interest from multiple donors that we decided to create a hybrid structure with clear governance, oversight and transparency in both organisations to best carry out our mission and purpose. The foundation will allow charitable activities carried out by the social enterprise previously (including PressPad Remote) to be funded for by grants and donations, and overseen by a board of trustees.
The existence of the charitable foundation will also better enable us to pass on funding to smaller and more niche organisations whose missions align with ours in order to strengthen and raise up other organisations to join a coalition of projects working in this space.
