Benefact Group is the third largest corporate donor in the UK and has an ambition to be the biggest. Owned by a charity, all of its available profits go to good causes, and the more the Group grows, the more the Group can give. As a family of independent, specialist financial services, we are grateful to all our supporters, including the customers of the trusted specialist insurer, Ecclesiastical, and the responsible and sustainable asset manager, EdenTree. Our Movement for Good Awards will continue to help charities nurture the next generation and we know that for many children and young people charities, £5,000 can make a real difference.” 

Benefact Group has donated over £200million to charitable causes since 2014 and has been recognised as the third biggest corporate giver in the UK1. The organisation aims to reach £250million in donations by 2025.
