 “We started the Quintessentially Foundation because it was quite simply the right thing to do. We are very proud of what it has achieved in a short space of time, and continue to be impressed by the work it is doing for communities at home, as well as across the globe”.

Ben Elliot, 
Founder of Quintessentially

The Q Foundation is a charitable organisation set up in the UK & HK, working alongside Quintessentially with disadvantaged communities worldwide. The Foundation works in partnership with innovative charities, funding grants enabling them to further their work.
Since its establishment in 2008, the Quintessentially Foundation has raised more than £1,558,000 for charity through a range of innovative charity fundraisers, including our biggest event – the Quintessentially Foundation annual bike ride. 
The hard work, generosity and determination of those involved has led to the achievement of some incredible projects, from building a school in Nepal for 250 pupils with Room to Read, to providing medical research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
