The Nick Maughan Foundation (NMF) was established at the start of the pandemic in 2020 to further a range of philanthropic initiatives in education, the environment and civic support schemes for disenfranchised communities.

Founded by the British impact investor and philanthropist Nick Maughan, NMF has three clear priorities across its three core pillars of education, environment and community:

To narrow the educational attainment gap that has been gravely exacerbation by the pandemic and provide disadvantaged young people with opportunities through which to get back on their feet.

number_2.png

To combat the social problems of homelessness and knife crime in the UK, as well as to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged young people at home and abroad.

number_3.png

To mitigate the effects of climate change by supporting progressive conservation and carbon sequestration schemes around the globe.

NMF is privately funded by Nick Maughan and does not accept any donations.
