Registered No. 1017398-1 – CIPS Foundation
CIPS has a long history of public good and supporting the professionals of Procurement and Supply.
In 2008 CIPS registered its Educational Fund with the Charities Commission by linkage, 1017398-1. The charity was established to administer and manage the Education Fund on behalf of the trustee, The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply. The funds were applied to helping the CIPS community to learn and develop within the procurement and supply profession.
In 2012 the Education Fund became the “CIPS Foundation” and delivered its charitable purpose through supporting those entering into the profession by providing grants to individuals.
In 2019, the Foundation expanded its model and now support organisations where the charitable activity is aligned.
