Accelerating self-sufficiency & prosperity

Crown Agents Foundation

Crown Agents is wholly owned by the Crown Agents Foundation

This makes us a not-for-profit company.

Crown Agents Foundation uses our profits to research development solutions which support our vision of accelerating self-sufficiency and prosperity.

As our sole shareholder, the Foundation appoints the Crown Agents Board and meets each year to review our accounts. They also safeguard our not-for-profit ethos, making sure we always stay true to our vision of accelerating self-sufficiency and prosperity.

The Crown Agents Council – a group of six individuals – meets twice a year to review the work we do.
