William George Edwards (1908 -1984)
Mr Edwards was a chartered surveyor who established his own firm of surveyors and built up a property investment company called The Wedge Property Company Ltd.
The W G Edwards Charitable Foundation was established in 1985 following the death of Mr Edwards. He intended that 250 shares in The Wedge Property Company Ltd should be invested and provide an income for the Foundation.
Income for The W.G. Edwards Charitable Foundation is generated within a sustainable, fossil-free responsible investment policy. The long-term policy integrates and promotes environmental, social and good governance factors within its equity-selection process. The fund is committed to the Paris Agreement on climate change.
This is a small charitable foundation with the majority of trustees being family members, supported by knowledgeable independent trustees.
