COINS Foundation is the not for profit organisation of the COINS group. We use enterprise to address issues of social justice. Our aim is to use the power of business to create a better and more sustainable future.


We are committed to supporting social enterprises and businesses with a social mission and believe that economic and social value should be intertwined.

With privilege comes responsibility to do something and the ability to make a difference.

Through business, social enterprise and the charities that we support, we can be an example of the art of the possible. We are not looking to provide a solution to today’s social problems, but to affect the way that people think about some of society’s bigger issues by getting a trend in the right direction.


COINS Foundation has three core areas of focus:

  • Engage others to think differently about business and social justice
    We are working to make the Foundation more sustainable. We are also influencing business owners to commit equity or profit shares to a foundation or charity.

  • Encourage social enterprises such as the Cookie Bar
    We have set up the Cookie Bar as a social venture to generate profit and deliver social goals.

  • Support sustainable programmes internationally.
    We support programmes that empower individuals and communities. These initiatives foster skills, confidence and prosperity, and encourage greater independence.

  • We build and benefit from partnerships with individuals, companies, traditional charities, social enterprises and NGOs.


COINS Foundation supports a wide range of social initiatives. We influence people to think differently about poverty, disability and injustice. We also look to influence others to start social enterprises and to commit equity from the outset into foundations and charities.

At the heart of COINS Foundation is a desire to see real and positive change in individual lives, communities and business.

Our philosophy is based on sharing:

If you have wealth and success: share it.

If you have creative talent: share it.

If you have intellect and skills: share it.

In our efforts to support business as a force for good we unite entrepreneurship with societal goals.

All of COINS Foundation’s overheads are covered by the COINS Group, meaning that 100% of the donations we receive go directly to our project partners.
