Financial Basics Foundation reaches thousands of teenagers with curriculum based financial literacy education. Its funding model relied on corporate partners. Despite having a extensive national reach with teachers/schools and teenage students it was not well known in the mass market and needed significant investment to upgrade its online teaching resources. Social Money Solutions was asked to assist in the development and acquisition of corporate partners to support the organisation’s projects and sustainability.
Financial Basics Foundation secured a multi-year presenting rights sponsor which enabled the redevelopment of key infrastructure for service delivery and acquired two other sponsors resulting on a 216% increase in funding.
Helping companies invest their CSR dollars for maximum impact
Like most companies, the Milton office of RBS Morgans Limited is regularly approached by charities seeking philanthropic support. RBS Morgans sought advice from Social Money Solutions as to the most effective and impactful way they could invest their charity donations.
After meeting with staff and determining the budget, Social Money Solutions developed a plan for RBS Morgans that identified a local charity which would greatly benefit from an investment of that size. The charity partner was selected based on affinity with RBS Morgans’ staff and included opportunities for ongoing staff engagement. The donation has made a real and lasting difference to the charity, and the relationship with RBS Morgans has continued to mutual benefit.
