The Reed Foundation & REED Charities
At Reed, we can proudly say that we are a responsible British business giving back to our local, national and international communities.
Since the beginning over 60 years ago, Reed has and continues to support commerce and employment through our work. Reed has supported society further still through the work of the Reed Foundation, our associated charities, and the charitable activities of our individual offices and co-members.
The Reed Foundation owns 18% of Reed.
The Reed Foundation was set up by Sir Alec Reed in 1985, owning 18% of the Reed Group for over 30 years. The funds directed to the foundation are at the heart of the company’s charitable giving.
With one-fifth of profits from the REED group invested in charitable causes, our co-members can proudly say that we work one day a week for charity.
We give globally…
Both charities still operate today, with Ethiopiaid having invested over £36million to help alleviate poverty in the most impoverished communities in Ethiopia. WomanKind Worldwide continues to support women’s rights campaigns around the world.
