We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.

Millennial social impact network BeyondMe has boosted its board with three new members who bring a wealth of City business and public sector experience with them.

The new members are:

  • Aman Bahel, a Director at Deutsche Bank in Global Transaction Banking
  • Heather Morgan, Director of People and Planning at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity
  • Shefaly Yogendra, a risk and strategy consultant

Between them they offer skills  in developing non-profit corporate sponsorships, raising capital, high-performing team building and leadership development.Each trustee has been appointed for a three year term.

BeyondMe now has over 100 partnerships between teams of professionals and charities working together to create a more meaningful impact in the world beyond them.

Michael Harris and Adam Pike, co-chairs and co-founders of BeyondMe said: “When we launched BeyondMe five years ago, we didn’t realise that we had hit upon a zeitgeist: professionals, particularly millennials, were increasingly demanding opportunities to have a social impact while at work and charities were in need of skills and funding to support their growth.

“As we embark on an ambitious five-year strategy, we are delighted to welcome Aman, Heather and Shefaly to the Board, and look forward to drawing upon their expertise to fuel BeyondMe’s growth. We have ambitious growth plans for 2016 and beyond to work with more leading employers, launch more teams, and ultimately deliver even greater social value to charities and social enterprises.”

BeyondMe seeks to motivate and mobilise professionals to commit their time, skills and money to causes and enables charities to benefit from the generosity of those professionals.

Since launching five years ago, BeyondMe has engaged over 1,000 professionals, has a portfolio of over 85 charities and social enterprises, and formed partnerships with leading businesses.

BeyondMe is currently recruiting a volunteer advisory panel of six to help shape the future of BeyondMe’s activities. Working closely with the executive team, advisors will counsel on programme improvement; input on brand awareness; and be a source of expertise and innovation
