Beyondly donate over £149,000 to charity as part of their annual ‘Fund for Change’ programme
Each year, Beyondly commit to giving 5% of their net profit to charitable projects, making a positive and impactful difference across a variety of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Beyondly’s vision is to create a better, fairer, sustainable world for all, and it can’t be done alone. Beyondly’s expertise in environmental consultancy lends itself well to creating a sustainable world, but it is Beyondly’s Fund for Change that allows them to encourage a world that is better, fairer, and more sustainable.
This year, Beyondly has donated £149,902.90 to 13 registered charities, which through a materiality assessment (designed to help you identify and understand the relative importance of specific ESG and sustainability topics to your stakeholders), have been identified as addressing the environmental, social and governance issues of upmost importance to Beyondly stakeholders.
Interested charities were asked to complete a grant application form, sharing the impact of the project and how it will deliver against Beyondly’s purpose; lead, inspire, and educate to positively impact society and the environment. The Beyondly team then selected those that were most aligned and would deliver the optimum impact in these areas.
The charities supported as part of the 2023 Fund for Change initiative include;
- National Oceanography Centre
- Skipton Step Into Action
- Share Skipton
- Recycling Of Used Plastics (RECOUP)

- Manchester Mind
- North Yorks Moors National Park Trust

Jessica Aldersley, Managing Director at Beyondly, shared her thoughts on the outcome of this year’s Fund for Change;
I was fortunate enough to be closely involved in our 2nd annual Fund for Change process, through which we saw applications more than double over the first year with a total of 23 applications received. It was inspiring to hear about the great work all of these charities are doing, and I speak on behalf of all of the Fund for Change team when I say we had a really tough decision on our hands in arriving at the final shortlist. However, we felt that the charities on our shortlist, and the projects we will be supporting were best placed to help us deliver against our purpose of leading, inspiring and educating to positively impact society and the environment and realise our vision of a better, fairer, sustainable world for all. We are really looking forward to seeing the projects be delivered, and the positive impact they will bring.
Over the next 12 months, Beyondly is excited to work alongside each charity to highlight and share the impact of their donation and the incredible work the charities do, day in, day out. You can find regular updates on this here.
