The Foundation was set up in 2004 to offer charities, community groups and not-for-profits independent property advice. We have helped over 2,500 organisations to rent, buy, let or manage property.
The Foundation offers one-to-one help through our Property Advice Service - initial support is free of charge. For more in-depth support the Foundation offers training and consultancy services.
The Foundation assists organisations by helping them to avoid expensive property mistakes and to take a strategic view of property assets. We aim to build the skills of those we help so they are better able to deal with property issues.

Unbelievably, it is ten years since the Ethical Property Foundation first came into being. Brainchild of Ethical Property Company founder Jamie Hartzell, the Foundation was born in response to the number of charities experiencing problems with property.
“‘Few rich men own their property; the property owns them.’ so said Civil War veteran Robert Ingersoll back in 1896. During these first weeks at the Foundation, I have realised that though the charity professionals ringing us every day may hardly match the Rockerfellers, they are certainly as preoccupied – if not consumed - by their properties.
