Commission appoints interim manager to Genesis Philanthropy Group

The charity provides grants for new and existing projects to advance the education of the public in the arts, culture and heritage of the Jewish people and develop and enhance a sense of Jewish identity within the Jewish community in the UK and elsewhere.

The Commission opened a statutory inquiry into Genesis Philanthropy Group in March 2022, to examine whether the charity can continue to operate and is viable, and whether the trustees have discharged their legal duties and responsibilities in their management and administration of the charity. The regulator has now appointed an interim manager to the charity as part of its inquiry.

Emma Moody of Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP was appointed as interim manager on 28 March 2022. She will fulfil a number of tasks, including managing the funds held in the charity’s bank account.

The Commission’s inquiry into the charity remains ongoing. It is the Commission’s intention to publish an inquiry report upon its conclusion.
