The TUCO Foundation aims to improve the wellbeing of communities through grant-giving and charitable donations. Here are some of the ways in which TUCO and the Foundation give donations, offer volunteering opportunities and conduct fundraising to support good causes around the world.
  • From 2017 - 2020, the then Chair of TUCO Matthew White, spearheaded a campaign to support Marys Meals, a charity providing life-changing meals to children in Malawi. TUCO's charitable arm, now called the TUCO Foundation, organised a series of challenges resulting in over £100,000 being raised to help feed children in Malawi. TUCO colleagues, members, suppliers and partners were sponsored for 22mile treks across the UK.


  • In 2022, Phil Rees-Jones, Chair of TUCO, donated to the DEC Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal on TUCO's behalf.


  • TUCO & Foundation staff regularly take part in volunteering days. Most recently, staff volunteered at Dr Kershaw's Hospice in the run up to Christmas.


  • As part of TUCO's sustainability and charitable works policy, all surplus food following events is donated to local shelters. In 2019 TUCO, in partnership with conference sponsor Brakes, Surplus4G and industry stalwart Roger Kellow, took all of the surplus food from the summer conference to a homeless hostel in York called ‘Changing Lives’. The organisation has 39 rooms and homes some of York’s most vulnerable people often with complex alcohol and drug addiction problems.
