The time is now, and we need you
Who we are
The Polden Puckham Charitable Foundation (PPCF) is a grant giving trust with Quaker family roots. We aim to contribute to the development of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability. Our priority is to address systemic threats by seeking to change policy and attitudes at a national or European level. We do this through supporting projects that seek to influence values and attitudes, promote equity and social justice, and develop radical alternatives to current economic and social structures.
The time is now
Humanity teeters on the brink of a climate and biodiversity crisis, in an increasingly insecure world. Polden Puckham believes that the time is now to support the change that is so urgently needed. We want to empower the people and projects that will make the crucial difference and achieve our vision. We have decided to devote all the resources of the foundation to our mission at this critical time for our future – the clock is ticking.
We need you
We want to grow our trustee board by up to a third – to bring in the strengths, skills, experience and energy that we need to set an exciting and effective future strategy for the foundation, and to identify the changemakers and work we need to support in the coming years.
Do you have the time, energy, drive and determination to help us spend our resources to change the world? Do you have knowledge and experience of the peace and sustainable security or environmental sustainability sectors? We are particularly looking for people who are underrepresented on charity boards – young people, people with disability, people of colour and those from ethnic minority backgrounds. We are open to adapting our practices and working flexibly to minimise any barriers to inclusion.
If you share our vision of a just society based on a commitment to nonviolence and environmental sustainability then we need you…
