The Impetus approach to venture philanthropy involvesproviding a distinctive combination of strategic funding and expertise to enable charities to scale uprapidly and effectively.The need • Charities with ambitious plans need long-term core funding, along with stronger organisational capacity and business expertise, to maximise their effectiveness and their effect on people’s lives. • Donors, looking for how to get the ‘biggest bang for their buck’, want to be sure that their money is going to the right charities and achieves the maximum social impact. • Society needs a mechanism to transfer business skills into the voluntary sector in order to increase its efficiency and effectiveness –reaching more disadvantaged people, faster and with greater impact.What we doImpetus supports the development of the whole organisation, not just a specific project or activity. Weonly back innovative and ambitious organisations fighting economic disadvantage, whoseleadership can make the most of the strategic investment and value-added support that we offer.How we do it • Unrestricted strategic funding in the form of grants • Very hands-on support to third sector organisations from Impetus investment team members. This support spans the entire investment period. • Specialist support for capacity building from a pool of 150 carefully vetted experts who volunteer their skills and experience.Our model allows us to leverage donors’ money for much greater impact, which is very appealing to ourgrowing donor base. For every £1 we raise, we have been able to leverage an additional £4 in co-investment and the value of pro bono expertise.2 2MYBNKmybnk.orgMyBnk (FSA 11

They are taught to love and respect food andits provenance - taking in everything from traditional bakery and butchery, to the finest pastry skills. Aspart of their course, apprentices also study professional cookery at college, get hands-on training in theFifteen restaurant, learn about food provenance on sourcing trips and do work experience at some toprestaurants. Apprentices graduate after 12 months of extensive training and start their journey ofbecoming the next generation of professional chefs.Fifteen is named after the first group of 15 apprentices who embarked on the course in London in 2002.Since then, more than 220 young people have graduated across all the restaurants, with some of themnow running their own restaurants, starring on TV or working in top-class kitchens from London to NewYork to Sydney.
