ONE FAMILY FOUNDATION
The OneFamily Foundation focuses on looking after their members and their families and communities. It’s a commitment that goes far beyond their range of award-winning financial products.With no shareholders to pay, the foundation gives the chance to support community projects by pooling the profits they make by being efficient. Rather than pay out an amount too small to make a meaningful difference to individual members, we use this money to do something special for those we really care about. Customers can nominate a project close to their heart for a Community Award of either £5,000 or £25,000. Or, they can apply for a Personal Grant of up to £500 for someone or something a little closer to home. Only our customers can apply, but anyone in our online community can vote for the projects that matter most to them.
We were approached by the foundations agency, Citypress to travel around the country, making a series of films about the projects which have received the investment from the foundation. We literally traveled the length and breadth of the England, we filmed a rowing club in Newquay, Cornwall, and a choir in Aberdeen, each one of the projects are incredibly inspiring, they all help the local community, giving much needed support to people in need. The documentary style meant that we were able to capture some candid interviews and get some lovely B-roll to help tell the stories of the projects.
