Virgin Unite is the non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group.
At Virgin Unite, we don’t believe in doing things by halves. We unite people to tackle tough social and environmental problems in an entrepreneurial way.
Our aim is to help revolutionise the way businesses and the social sector work together – driving business as a force for good. This is based on the belief that this is the only way we can tackle the scale of the challenges facing the world today.
Virgin Unite’s overheads are covered by Sir Richard Branson and the Virgin Group, meaning that 100% of donations received, go direct to the frontline where they are needed most.
Virgin Unite focuses on three areas:
1. Big Ideas – creating new global leadership models to address conflict, climate change and disease
2. Entrepreneurial Incubator – bringing together the business and social sectors to develop entrepreneurial approaches that lead to economic empowerment and healthy communities
3. Business Mobilisation and Inspiration – offering consultancy and practical support to make it simple for businesses to become a force for good
Why do we do it?
Because, as the non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group, we believe business can be a force for good. And because Sir Richard and the Virgin Group pick up all our overhead costs, we can ensure 100% of all donations go to the front line, where it matters most.
Our work is supported by a growing community of staff, customers, suppliers and other individuals and organisations that are joining forces to tackle tough issues. All our initiatives are based on harnessing their entrepreneurial energy.
You can make a difference. Right here, right now.
