Contributing to society through charitable donation is fundamental to the practice. When Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners was set up, the beneficial ownership of the group was given to a charity company which is now called the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners Charitable Foundation, (Company registration number 02548804 and charity number 1000796). Every year that the group is profitable, under the rules our constitution, RSHP allocates 20% of pre-distribution profit to the charity. The amount is then available to be distributed to charities and other worthy causes. To foster a culture of charitable giving within the group, each partner and qualifying member of staff is allocated a portion of this amount which they are then able to donate to a charity or good cause close to their hearts.
• 20% of pre-distribution profit allocated to charity
• Over £3 million given to the charity in past 6 years
• Staff can allocate portion of this amount to charities of choice
All staff are encouraged to participate in charitable activities and fundraising, and over the years they have raised money in a wide variety of ways, including:
A strong commitment to education is one of our core values and we provide future generations with the knowledge and experience of architecture and the built environment. The practice has created several bursaries around the country to try and help broaden the range of people joining the profession and was also one of the founding partners of the London School of Architecture (LSA) which was established to offer an alternative route into the profession. We work closely with a variety of organizations to offer a rich programme of learning experiences.

As a practice we want to make sure people have more choice and control in the areas where they live or work. This comes about through a two-way exchange of views, knowledge, experience, and skills to build stronger communities.
