Thanks to John’s success in business, he counts himself lucky that he is in the unique position to support the projects and causes that he is most passionate about.
As a signatory to the ‘Giving Pledge’, John is committed to giving over half his wealth to charitable causes. By signing up to the Pledge, John sits alongside Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and many others who are using their personal wealth to solve intractable problems.
John gives significantly to and raises the profiles of causes which struggle to receive the attention, funding and assistance they so desperately need. Caudwell Children and Caudwell LymeCo are two charities that John has founded and funded, devoting his time, money, and energy to ensure the charities improve the lives of as many people as possible.
Beyond these charities, John has also supported a wide variety of causes, from the creation of the Bomber Command Memorial, which stands as a fitting tribute to the 55,573 Bomber Command crew who lost their lives in the Second World War, to the Elton John Aids Foundation and its work in South Africa, to the amazing work of the Prince’s Trust.
