The Ten-Percent Foundation was set up in 2002 as a charitable trust specifically to distribute the donation Ten-Percent.co.uk Limited gives each year to charities. This includes the Ten-Percent Group of recruitment websites, which includes our Legal Recruitment services (ten-percent.co.uk, interimlawyers.co.uk and jonathanfagan.co.uk) and also our related company TP Transcription Limited (tptranscription.co.uk and universitytranscriptions.co.uk). We donate 10% of net profits each year to the Foundation, which is a registered Charitable Trust in the UK (reg no 1095812). This is following the tithe principle from mediaeval times, although there are no links between the company or the charity to any religion.
The Directors of Ten-Percent.co.uk Limited are firm believers in the notion of corporate responsibility and we strongly encourage businesses around the world to take a similar step in promoting philanthropy. We maintain a page detailing other companies who donate a percentage of profit or turnover to charitable causes – details of these can be found here.
Our commitment to annual charitable donations is set down in our Articles of Association. So far we have donated over £175,000 (to 2022). It is our business aim to ensure a healthy growth for the company and at the same time spend 10% of our income supporting charitable causes both in the UK and overseas. We enjoy the process of giving away our profits each year, once we have got over watching the money disappear from our bank account, and it is always nice to get positive responses from the charities we donate to and it makes us feel a bit better.
We try to find charities with specific projects we can follow up on, and prefer smaller sized charities to the large ones, especially those with CEO’s earning shed loads of cash (you know who you are – click here for our article on this). Our clients will also nominate charities, particularly those they are personally involved with or who have been of assistance, and we like to support small charities related to the legal profession.
