SHARED INTEREST FOUNDATION 

Providing business support to make livelihoods and living standards better for disadvantaged communities in some of the world's poorest countries. A key ongoing project is the delivery of producer training.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker recently
  • This charity is a recent Award Winner
  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board has little diversity in terms of age

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
