Pears Foundation launches philanthropy promotion partnership

Three of the UK’s leading business schools have launched a partnership to promote a culture of philanthropy among the business leaders of the future. Cranfield School of Management, London Business School and Said Business School have joined forces to establish the Pears Business Schools Partnership. Its principal activities will be the publication of a series of case studies on the theme of contributing to the public good, such as philanthropy, personal service, social entrepreneurship, and individual and corporate responsibility; and the staging of an annual lecture by a leading philanthropist or business figure. Principally funded by the Pears Foundation, who commissioned the research out of which it grew, the partnership will run for an initial period of three years with a total investment of £750,000. Twenty-seven case studies will be written (nine by each business school) and three major lectures on philanthropy delivered on a rotating basis by the schools.
