The Big Tent Foundation has been established and constituted as a not-for profit company, limited by guarantee. Although the aims are charitable in nature, the Foundation itself will not be a charity, as formalised charities are restricted in their ability to operate in political contexts. The objectives of the foundation are:
To capture and develop the outcomes of the Big Tent Ideas Festival
To develop the potential of entrepreneurial activity, ideas, innovation and culture
To create a non-partisan political forum to advance innovative public policy in the UK.
We are also in the process of creating The Big Tent Trust as a charitable route for fundraising.
