The Nick Maughan Foundation (NMF) was established to further a range of philanthropic initiatives in education, the environment and civic support schemes for disenfranchised communities.
Through the Foundation Nick sponsors a number of scholarships in secondary education in the area of London in which he grew up, and supports a range of private initiatives to provide educational aid to households below the median income.
As part of its environmental work, The Foundation is a key donor to Tusk, whose mission is to amplify the impact of progressive conservation initiatives across Africa. With a particular focus on climate change, NMF is working on several initiatives to reduce carbon emissions and sequester carbon both in the U.K. and abroad.
The Foundation also supports disenfranchised communities. It is a donor to the Berkshire Youth Trust, which provides youth support services to help vulnerable young people make successful transitions to adulthood.
Nick is a collector and active supporter of the arts. Inspired by the work of his brother Oliver Maughan, a London-based landscape painter, he supports young and emerging artists in the United Kingdom.
