Sarah Hughes
Philanthropy Connector | Founder ( social purpose tech), Beacon Collaborative | Mishi 🎶 | Charity21
Here to make philanthropy, social innovation and impact more vibrant, rewarding and collaborative. I have a background in designing new tools for social change. I believe in democratising and simplifying technology that brings people together to achieve more, and to solve social, environmental or community challenges in a meaningful way. I’m an advocate for generosity. I currently work as a philanthropy champion for The Beacon Collaborative. I recently cofounded Mishi, a therapeutic music app. I’m a trustee at Project Lighthouse, an Advisory Board Member at Charizone and an advisor at Apps for Good.

Purpose of community
Beacons Connect is a private network for connection and conversation on philanthropy and social impact investment in the UK. Its aim is to promote and improve ideas and collaboration. Delegates at sector events often tell us "we don't want these conversations to stop". So we’ve chosen to create a trustworthy space for ongoing peer discussion and networking. We hope it will help you make and improve relationships as well as find opportunities to enhance the reach and impact of your work. The network is run by UK registered charity The Beacon Collaborative. We believe in generosity and collaboration. Our mission is to grow philanthropy and impact investment among wealth-holders in the UK. Membership is reserved for the philanthropists, enterprise leaders, social impact investors, sector support organisations, partners and advisers that we collaborate with. Please note that we ask you to provide a profile photo, title and a brief bio to join. Why Beacons? Because that's what we are: citizens shining a warm and encouraging light on the vital and rewarding role philanthropy and social investment plays in a thriving and caring society. Thank you for being here 🙏
