The Permira Foundation

Formed in 2017, the Permira Foundation was set up to centralise the firm's philanthropic initiatives in the geographies in which we operate. Whilst Permira has a long history of being involved in charitable giving, the Permira Foundation ensures a consistent approach to charitable giving across Permira and encourages engagement with the charities alongside financial support.

Formed in 2017, the Permira Foundation was set up to centralise the firm's philanthropic initiatives in the geographies in which we operate. Whilst the organisation has had a long history of being involved in charitable giving, it was important to ensure there was a consistent message across all the offices and that we encouraged engagement with the charities alongside financial support.

Permira Relief Fund

Close

In April 2020, the Permira Foundation set up a Relief Fund in response to the impact that COVID-19 had on the communities in which we operate.

The Foundation leveraged existing relationships with charities to reach out to other beneficiaries that were particularly affected by the pandemic. The fund deployed and continues to deploy large grants and 3:1 matching from employees to charities identified as being already in existence and front-line in their efforts. There has been a particular focus on engaging with charities beyond just financial assistance and the team continue to look for opportunities where we can support with pro-bono projects and volunteer in many areas. We are currently working on many initiatives across the globe with a large proportion of Permira employees working alongside organisations to amplify the impact we can have.
