Inflexion Private Equity Partners LLP (“Inflexion”) is proud to launch The Inflexion Foundation.
Inflexion has today announced the closing of Inflexion Buyout Fund V and Inflexion Partnership Capital Fund II (the “Funds”). As part of the fundraising, it has been agreed that The Inflexion Foundation will receive distributions equal to 1% of the Funds’ profits.
Inflexion has a long history of charitable engagement, with a particular focus on supporting organisations that have a substantial impact on positive outcomes and opportunities for disadvantaged young people. It is Inflexion’s philanthropic philosophy that real societal benefit can be achieved by improving the prospects of young people, who can then go on to make their own positive contribution in their communities. Charities supported by Inflexion to date include The Prince’s Trust, The Roundhouse, Impetus-PEF and The British Exploring Society. The Inflexion Foundation will expand and formalise this charitable giving programme enabling the Inflexion Foundation to step-up from current levels of giving to £5 million – 10 million per annum in the medium term as the Funds mature.
Charitable giving has long been a central part of Inflexion’s culture and we are passionate about improving the prospects of young people, for example by supporting their access to education and career opportunities. To be able to expand these activities with the launch of The Inflexion Foundation is extremely exciting and we greatly appreciate the support of our investors with respect to this initiative.
Inflexion has been a valued supporter of The Prince’s Trust for a number of years. In addition to providing funding, they have proactively supported a number of our initiatives including our mentoring and training programmes. The formation of The Inflexion Foundation is a significant step forward for corporate charitable giving and I look forward to partnering with Inflexion in the years to come. I hope other companies follow the example set by Inflexion.
