Using our assets to tackle major health challenges
With our local focus, we are one of the largest health foundations in the UK relative to the size of the population we serve. Our assets put us in a privileged position where we can take the long-term perspective that others in health cannot. We manage them carefully to ensure they can bring real value to those they benefit.
In 2015 we won a prestigious Portfolio Institutional Award for the “forward-thinking” way in which we make and manage our investments
We’re able to provide financial support to make real change happen. This is largely thanks to a significant endowment, the accumulation of donations over many centuries, which today amounts to around £705 million. We manage and use it carefully so that we can fund great ideas that transform people’s health.
The properties and estates we own enable us to continue to invest in innovative approaches to health. Some of our properties are helping to create better health by hosting healthcare facilities, while our investment properties generate funds that help us further our charitable mission.
As the charity for Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, we raise funds from the general public and other generous donors to make care at our hospitals even better. Our fundraising team supports staff, patients and others to raise vital money, which is distributed through special funds in the way the donors intended.
