How it works
The Ecovis London Foundation was founded in early 2016 by the Partners of Ecovis Wingrave Yeats. Each year we allocate a percentage of the firm’s profits to the Foundation. This gives the Foundation financial stability and enables it to invest in causes on a long term and sustainable basis.
The Foundation has an executive board which includes 4 staff from Ecovis Wingrave Yeats. It is important to the Partners that everybody has a say in the charitable focus of the Foundation and all staff are encouraged to contribute with ideas.
Our 2016 focus: Homelessness
Homelessness is a nationwide problem with thousands of people forced to sleep rough every night. Rough Sleepers (or Rooflessness) is the most visible form of homelessness however low-paid families and the young are among the hidden victims. Statistics show that the number of people sleeping on the streets of London rose to more than 7,500 in 2015. Working in Soho, this is an issue that is right outside our door or just around the corner and as a result, very close to our hearts.
The Ecovis London Foundation is a separate legal charitable entity registered and regulated by the Charity Commission, Charity No: 1170290
The Foundation has an independent Board of Trustees that are tasked with identifying which projects to support and overseeing the work undertaken by the Foundation. At their discretion, the Partners of Ecovis Wingrave Yeats may provide the Foundation with funding to enable to Foundation to carry out its work.
