Charity Shout Out - Fredericks Foundation

In support of our Hero of the Month's charitable endeavours, this month we encourage people wanting to donate to a good cause to consider The Fredericks Foundation. The Fredericks Foundation

Fredericks Foundation was founded in 2001 by Paul Barry-Walsh, a successful IT entrepreneur. In the years since, Fredericks has transformed the lives of thousands. Fredericks have given entrepreneurs – unattractive to high street banks – a hand up to start their own businesses. To follow a dream, climb out of poverty, look after their families and become economic contributors to society.  

The foundation's experience has proven Paul's belief, that hand ups, not handouts, are the key to a successful business. Fredericks provide loan finance for those turned down by mainstream lenders. The fact is that mainstream banks are unable to support funding for start-up business where the applicant has a poor credit history, or little or no track record in running a business. This can prove a seemingly insurmountable barrier to those seeking to obtain start-up finance. The result; those who need the funding most, are the least able to access it. 

If you support Fredericks you will be supporting the entrepreneurs who need the most help.  You can donate HERE. There are both Corporation Tax and Gift Aid benefits available if you do give. And you will find out how your money is being put to work, as Fredericks Foundation will create specific reports that highlight the key outcomes resulting from the donations.
