A philosophy of healing

Demèter’s vision is imbued with the gentle Buddhist philosophy of kindness. Our ethos is to heal and not harm, respect the lives of all living beings and speak out for those who don’t have a voice. Demèter Legacy Fund is guided by the principles of compassion, wisdom and discernment.

We dream of a world where those without a voice are seen, heard, protected, and cherished. Demèter Legacy Fund provides financial support to those amazing, inspiring and courageous individuals, not-for-profits and non-government organisations that are on the ground working to make a difference. We exist 100% to fund community projects.

The fund is supported by profit-for-purpose businesses who donate 100% of their profits to Demèter Legacy Fund.

Demeter patrons envisage a society that uses business as a force for good. Demeter patrons are businesses comprised of a new type of company. These companies are purpose driven and create benefits for all, clients, community, employees and suppliers, as well as shareholders.

After these companies deduct all the costs involved in delivering great services and products to their clients, 100% of the profit is donated to the Demeter Legacy fund.
