Impetus Trust works to break the cycle of poverty by investing in charities and social enterprises that fight economic disadvantage. It uses a venture philanthropy model to accelerate the growth of carefully selected organisations so that they can help more economically disadvantaged people to gain education, skills and jobs.
The charity says that for every £1 it invests, it is able to leverage nearly £4 more of value for its portfolio organisations, through the deployment of high-calibre pro bono expertise, partnership investment and additional funds raised.
