Support Transforming Business

Join us in understanding and fostering virtuous enterprise for the common good!

Donations to support Transforming Business' research, output and core operations are received by the InnoGroup Foundation in the USA. This arrangement reflects the international scope of Transforming Business' work. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the InnoGroup Foundation provides tax-efficient giving for US citizens. Checks made to the InnoGroup Foundation can simply be sent to Carolyn Van Wieren at to the following address, indicating that your gift is in support of Transforming Business: InnoGroup Foundation, 441 E. Roosevelt, Ste. 100, Zeeland MI 49464, USA. Carol is happy to assist with any practical queries and can advise on other methods of giving (carolyn.vanwieren [at] innotecgroup.com).

Everyone who joins Transforming Business as a Fellow, Associate, Partner, Advocate or Friend is entitled to a free copy of Transforming Capitalism (see here) and a free year's subscription to the journal Faith in Business Quarterly. Simply drop Peter Heslam a line by email (psh20 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk) to confirm that you wish to join.

Become a Fellow or Associate

Fellows and Associates make a charitable (tax-deductible) donation of £7,980 (US$10,000) per year (equivalent to £665 or $835 per month) for business leaders and £720 ($1150) per year for others (equivalent to £60 or $75 per month). Most of the work of Transforming Business is supported by Fellows and Associates, who generally are keen also to provide non-financial benefits to the work because of the passion in which we share.

In becoming a Fellow or an Associate, you'll be helping the project to maximize the potential of Christian entrepreneurs worldwide to build social capital and overcome poverty. You’ll also become part of a global network of cutting-edge business researchers, thinkers and leaders who are committed to this agenda.

Fellows and Associates receive:

  • invitations to restricted events;
  • priority invitations to open events;
  • a free copy of Transforming Capitalism by Peter Heslam (see here);
  • a copy of the book we select each year to be of outstanding significance in the field;
  • a year's subscription to the journal Faith in Business Quarterly;
  • a year’s supply of free branded business cards, personalized with your name and affiliation to Transforming Business;
  • access to the password-protected Fellows Zone and Associates Zone of the Transforming Business website. These zones contain valuable previously unpublished material, including case studies and (eventually) video clips of Christian business leaders running substantial businesses around the world. Fellows and Associates who are also respondents in our research will be able to read and share the case study we have produced of their enterprise and the companies of others in their region.

All the above are designed to inspire, resource, equip and connect, and come with our compliments.

The only difference between Fellows and Associates is that Fellows are expected to contribute to the output of Transforming Business, either in written form (such as short twice yearly reflections), or in terms of speaking at an event/s.

Any person whose application to become a Fellow is unsuccessful would still be eligible to become an Associate. Simply drop Peter Heslam a line by email (psh20 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk) to register your interest in becoming a Fellow, so that the expectations can be agreed.

In becoming a Partner, you'll be helping the project to maximize the potential of Christian entrepreneurs worldwide to build social capital and overcome poverty.
