The Infrastructure Industry Foundation (IIF) has been set up to unite the infrastructure industry in donating funds to worthy charitable causes close to the industry.
The IIF was conceived by Infracapital, with the backing of a number of our friends in the infrastructure industry, in response to the tragic diagnosis of one of our colleagues with a vicious and rare form of cancer, Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC). As such, the inaugural fundraising dinner, held in October 2019, was in support of The Ella Project. With generous support from the industry we raised c.£250,000 to fund life-saving research into ACC.
Our vision is to establish a permanent cross industry foundation. Through annual events we aim to bring participants across the industry together to socialise and network whilst raising funds that can provide a lasting legacy of which participants in the industry can be proud.
With ESG a key consideration for our activities as managers, we hope you agree there is an opportunity for us to make a further positive contribution to the societies in which we operate. We received an overwhelmingly positive response from everyone from the inaugural event last year and it demonstrated that there is a genuine appetite among the industry to go that step further. Looking ahead, we hope to build on the success of last year and hold a second event later this year. Please visit The 2020 Event page for further details.
The current proposed trustee representatives are overseeing the establishment of the IIF. It is envisaged certain trustees will rotate annually reflecting the causes to be supported in the year
We are inviting all participants in the industry to become members of the IIF.
