Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation Awards Grant to Manchester Based Charity – Mustard Tree

The Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation has announced it has awarded a £10,800 (USD 14K) grant to Manchester based charity Mustard Tree, which combats poverty and prevents homelessness in the city.

Mustard Tree creates opportunities for people to help themselves through providing practical support, friendship, connections into work, improvements to health and wellbeing, plus new experiences to encourage aspiration.

The Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation was established in 2018 to nurture innovative ideas, impact economic and social issues and enable progress in underserved communities around the globe. Since its inception, the Foundation has donated over USD 1.25 million to charities.

Duff & Phelps employees recommend grants and volunteer to qualifying charitable organizations. Mustard Tree is one of the charitable organizations across Europe and the Americas selected to receive a grant in 2020. The donation represents part of USD 150,000 dedicated to support 20 European organizations.

Paul Smith, Managing Director in the Global Restructuring Advisory practice at Duff & Phelps in Manchester commented: “We were delighted to support Mustard Tree back in 2018, the inaugural year of the Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation, and given the current crisis many charities now face this is a vitally important donation.”

Mustard Tree is a fantastic charity that does amazing work in the local community. It’s great to be able to give back to an organization which is doing such incredible work in the face of the pandemic. Now more than ever its work is essential.”

Jo Walby, Mustard Tree CEO, added: “The donation from the Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation is essential and very welcome especially in these challenging times. But it is not just the money that helps us. The team at Duff & Phelps has given us their time and expertise to help us give people the dignity and support they need during this difficult period.”
