Thanks to the hugely valuable support from our sponsors, we are able to run the Midlands Family Business Awards as a not-for-profit initiative.

We are conscious that not all children are born into the same opportunities or values that are often the privilege of those born into successful family businesses. The funds raised by the Awards, over £25,000 to date, are as a result of the unwavering generosity of our many supporters and the family businesses themselves, through sponsorship, fundraising events, donations, charity raffles and ticket sales for the Awards dinner itself.

In 2016 the funds raised through the Midlands Family Business Awards supported two charities, the Alzheimer's Society and Headway.

Thank You!
