Business Plan for Peace (BPP) and Plan for Peace (P4P) are two distinct but related entities: BPP is a private limited company registered in England and Wales (company number 11780694), and P4P is a charity registered in England and Wales (number 1189261). Each entity is governed by its own Board.
Why are there two different UK organisations?
Having two separate organisations means that we can maximise our peace building impact. P4P benefits from the government’s Gift Aid scheme, can receive gifts in Wills and raise money from trusts, foundations and individuals who will only donate to registered charities.
Although P4P enjoys some significant benefits, it also operates under statutory regulation. This constrains what P4P can work on, the methods it can use and how it operates. BPP, by contrast, has fewer constraints and has more freedom in how it pursues its peacebuilding mission, including activity not deemed charitable under UK law.
Taken together, this arrangement means we can maximise financial support for peacebuilding, our voice and our impact.
