Showcasing best practice in giving
The Beacon Awards are a biennial event founded in 2003 to showcase best practice in giving and encourage more and better philanthropy in the UK. Since 2010 the Beacon Awards have been managed by UK Community Foundations.
In the present economic climate the need for more and better philanthropy is more important than ever. Beacon exists to inspire the expansion of philanthropic work and we now have over 90 fellows each of whom is an example of how rewarding a life of effective and strategic philanthropy can be.
Beacon also runs a programme of smaller events that offer opportunities for philanthropists to connect with each other in order to learn about the best philanthropic work in the UK today.
