Investing Responsibly

Giving Back

Bridgepoint supports many charitable organisations in local communities wherever it operates, investing time, expertise as well as the financial resources to make a difference.

Our charitable foundation – Bridgepoint Charitable Trust (‘BCT’) – is funded by the Firm and its employees. It provides support to charities nominated by our teams across our network and considered by trustees who are drawn from across the Firm.

We also encourage the individual philanthropic work of our team by matching the fundraising efforts of individual team members and supporting the charities sponsored by colleagues or companies having a close relationship with the Firm.

Charities currently supported by the Trust are: Dandelion Time, United World Schools in the UK, Coup de Pouce Clé in France, Billion Oyster Project in the US and Läxhjälpen in Sweden.

Dandelion Time

UK

Dandelion Time is a UK-based charity which aims to help and educate children with behavioural, educational and emotional needs by providing therapeutic and developmental activities for children and their families within a sustainable farm environment. The BCT donation will help fund its Transition Programme which is designed to prepare children who are at risk from school exclusion for the transition to secondary school.

Coup de Pouce Clé

France

Coup de Pouce Clé aims to improve the literacy and numeracy of children in France by running after-school clubs for small groups of children, predominantly in deprived areas. It also helps parents of affected children to become more involved in encouraging their children to read and write. In this way Coup de Pouce stimulates the development of children’s cognitive and soft skills (motivation, self-confidence, and pleasure in reading) as well as giving parents the keys to support their children.

United World Schools

UK

United World Schools (‘UWS’) is a UK-based charity which provides education to isolated communities who do not receive the benefit of government education systems, typically in the Far East. It does this by building schools in remote communities and entering into partnerships with local communities and local education authorities to provide local teachers and government teachers who can fully communicate with the local population.

BCT first made a donation in 2017 to build a school in Sdao in Northern Cambodia – now fully operational, with over 260 school children and six teachers. They have also more recently built a second school - in Prey Khiev Khang Kert, a remote village located in Mondulkiri, in Eastern Cambodia. This has 130 primary aged children (with a further 50 within three years of its opening) and employs two teachers and a librarian.

Läxhjälpen

Sweden

Läxhjälpen, a Swedish not for profit organisation focussed on providing homework tutoring support to children in socioeconomically disadvantaged areas of Sweden, with the aim of getting them ready for high school.

The BCT donation will allow a new study group to open in Stockholm, support an existing group there for another year as well as contribute to Läxhjälpen’s expansion in the Malmö and Gothenburg regions.

Billion Oyster Project

US

The ‘Billion Oyster Project’ is a marine restoration and environmental education organisation identified by Bridgepoint’s New York office. The charity has two aims: to restore one billion live oysters to the New York harbour by 2035 and at the same time to engage and educate students in the city’s middle and New York Harbour schools about the importance of functioning ecosystems.

It will achieve this by restoring oyster reefs and harnessing the powerful ability of oysters to filter nitrogen pollution from the water and thereby create a habitat for hundreds of marine species. The charity also believes that direct engagement and interaction with wild animals and functioning ecosystems has a transformative effect on young people. 6,000+ students to date in New York City have monitored oyster and harbour health as part of their education.

Bridgepoint Hardship Fund

The Bridgepoint team has responded to the Covid-19 crisis by raising a £3 million Hardship covid relief Fund dedicated to frontline relief causes in our local communities and in areas close to our portfolio companies. The Fund comprises contributions from our Board members (the equivalent to 20% of salaries) and also attracted significant contributions from our Partnership and broader team. The Fund distributes donations, large and small, via our Bridgepoint Charitable Trust, to frontline covid affected causes identified by our teams globally as well as by individual team members.
