The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation is a global venture philanthropy firm supporting early stage, high impact social enterprises. We believe that with early funding and rigorous support, exceptional leaders, tackling some of society’s most complex problems, can make the world a better place.

We are excited to be supporting them as they grow.


Arup is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services. A commitment to humanitarian aims was articulated as a key principle in 1970 by the firm’s founder, Ove Arup. This commitment remains fundamental to the way Arup operates today. Through our Community Engagement programme, and our work generally, we fulfil this commitment through giving, doing and developing, via a number of active initiatives which allow us to support communities throughout the world, as we strive to meet the challenges that face humanity. We are proud to have formed a strong strategic partnership with Pollinate Energy to work towards better energy and water outcomes for slum and rural communities in India and Nepal.
