Celebrating 10 Years of Royal Patronage of UK Impact Initiatives
100 Women in Finance celebrates the decade-long Royal Patronage of our UK Philanthropic Initiatives, which served as an important foundation for our Impact work in the UK today.
As background, the Duke of Cambridge first became patron of 100 Women in Finance UK Philanthropic Initiatives in 2009, and in 2012 The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry joined The Duke in becoming patrons. Since 2009, we have had the opportunity to support outstanding organizations that are part of the Charities Forum of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, including Centrepoint, Child Bereavement UK, Action on Addiction, WellChild and The Art Room. The beneficiary of our 2019 philanthropic efforts was the Mentally Healthy Schools initiative of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
100 Women in Finance additionally celebrates Blaine and Laura Tomlinson, Patronage Sponsors of 100WF’s Impact Initiatives. Since 2010, Blaine and Laura Tomlinson have been both generous and unwavering in their support of 100 Women in Finance’s highest priorities, including our global Investing in the Next Generation Initiative, as well as our local UK programme partners. Over the years, they have enabled 100WF to strive for greater impact through more ambitious programming, most recently with the 2019 launch of Maths4Girls, 100WF’s pilot programme with Founders4Schools.
In recognition of their efforts, Mr. and Mrs. Tomlinson will be awarded with 100 Women in Finance’s Effecting Change award at our London Gala on 12 February 2002.
