What is the Matthew Good Foundation?
The Matthew Good Foundation was established following the passing of Matthew Good, on 26th June 2011, while running a marathon for charity. He was the sixth generation to work in the John Good Group family business and was incredibly passionate about making a positive difference to our employees and our communities. Since then, the John Good Group donates money to the Foundation every year to cover its running costs and enable charitable giving by the business and its 100 employees.
John Good Group donates £15,000 to five chosen charities every quarter – that’s a whopping £60,000 a year! Also, our team members are given £1,500 a year each to donate to a charity of their choice.
Grants for Good
Launched in 2021, Grants for Good is a dedicated fund that invites charities, community interest companies and social entrepreneurs to apply for funding. The fund also makes it very easy for our employees to donate any amount they wish to smaller charities, enabling them to make a valuable contribution to worthy causes around the UK. John Good Group donates £15,000 to five chosen charities every quarter – that’s a whopping £60,000 a year! This provides small charities with the opportunity to be amplified whilst creating a vehicle for our employees to select the charity of their choice through a dedicated internal voting system.

Empowering employees to make a difference
Since its inception, the Foundation has donated more than £450,000 to good causes in the UK and abroad that are close to our employees’ hearts. Good Travel Management is proud to align with the Matthew Good Foundation and our team members are given £1,500 a year each to donate to a charity of their choice.
The Foundation also believes in giving back to the community not only financially, but also in terms of time. That’s why our colleagues are offered paid leave that they can spend volunteering, utilising their specialised skills and talents to help charities reach their goals.
