Jonathan Smith co-founded Charity Futures with Sir Stephen Bubb and now chairs the board. Jonathan is Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Woodford Investment Management, which is funding the Charity Futures programme. He has built up a deliberately low profile but very active programme for the Oxford based asset management company, since its inception in 2014. The programme focusses on what he describes as “the business of charity” – funding core costs.

Jonathan is a former Business Ambassador for HRH The Prince of Wales at Business in the Community and sits on Advisory Boards for a number of charities.
