Philippa is Head of Corporate Clients at Charities Aid Foundation. The team help companies across the private, public, and social sectors transform purpose into practice. They work with clients on corporate giving, employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability in order to benefit their business and broader society. CAF is the UK’s leading provider of corporate giving, with an unrivalled knowledge of how to safeguard donations and maximise their impact.
Philippa has recently collaborated with companies such as AstraZeneca, Warburtons and Marks & Spencer to help them embed their company’s purpose and deliver long lasting change.
The team closely follow developments in ESG and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They advise firms on how to be a ‘responsible business’, and to help them make meaningful commitments in order to compete for talent, future-proof markets, mitigate modern supply chain risks and respond to the evolving challenges of climate change.

The pandemic has increased focus on the extent of wealth inequality, in the UK and abroad, while headlines and conversations engendered by COP26 continue to highlight the desperate environmental situation.

“Our research shows how the pandemic has accelerated a stark decline in cash donations to charities, as fewer people carry cash in their pockets,” said CAF head of corporate clients Philippa Cornish. “Contactless donations are likely to make up a larger proportion of fundraising efforts for many charities, which is why we are pleased to be working with GoodBox and supporting Contactless Giving Week this December.”
