ColourBrave Charity Committee


As part of the PwC's commitment to continue to build an inclusive culture and tackle racial inequality, we have recently appointed a committee which will be allocating grants to increase our support for Black-led social enterprises, as well as charities with ethnic minority beneficiaries.

We are encouraging organisations that meet the entry criteria to apply for a grant in the range of £2,000 to £25,000, depending on their scale, activity and impact.

Review process

The committee will review each application.
