DescriptionAt Guy’s & St Thomas’ Foundation, our mission is clear – to build the foundations of a healthier society. For over 500 years, we’ve been a constant in London’s ever-changing landscape, at the leading edge of health. Our home in the heart of a global city is vibrant and diverse, but it is also a place with stark health inequity. Our commitment and work are backed by our endowment, which allows us to take a long-term view while addressing the real and urgent health issues of today. Our focus is on backing people and ideas to drive more equitable health. We invest, partner, engage and influence to come at big health challenges from all angles. Through our family of forward-looking organisations, we collaborate with our communities, partners and hospitals, and use our assets to transform lives.ApproachWe invest, partner and influence - working with others to come at big health challenges from all angles. We are on a mission to build the foundations of a society that helps everyone stay healthier, for longer. We’re an investor, the holder of valuable assets, and the enabler of a family of forward-looking organisations working to create better health. At close to £1 billion, our endowment is one of the largest among foundations in the UK. It allows us to take a long-term view while addressing the real and urgent health issues of today. In investing and managing our assets, we look for both health impact and financial returns. We strive to act consistently with our mission, considering the impact of our investments and assets on the health of our planet and people.
