On 9th July 2014, we received confirmation from the Dutch Tax Authority that the Philips Foundation had been awarded registered charity status. This great news marks the official start of operations of the Philips Foundation, an independent entity and registered charity set up to consolidate Royal Philips’ global CSR efforts and ensure maximum impact.
Katy Hartley is the Philips Foundation’s Director. Her role is to run the operational side of the Foundation on a daily basis, processing project requests, progressing partnerships, helping the Foundation Board make decisions on strategy as well as working with the Foundation team and the wider Philips organization. We caught up with Katy to find out more about her personal vision for the Philips Foundation.

Program Director, Katy Hartley recently spent time in Geneva with the humanitarian sector and assembled academia discussing the role of innovation while Program Manager, Sarah Schaeffer has been working with Katy on the Foundation’s response to Ebola as part of the disaster relief pillar.
