Steve’s story

Steve is an entrepreneur and philanthropist. Born in Liverpool, at the age of 21 he established Redrow, which grew to be one of the UK’s most successful housebuilders. Despite Steve’s obvious success in business, he has never forgotten his roots on some of the toughest streets in Liverpool. It was Steve’s desire to give something back that prompted him to set up the Steve Morgan Foundation in 2001. Steve is passionate about bringing positive change to the communities closest to his heart and beyond. Steve received an OBE in 1992 for Services to the Construction Industry and, in 2016, received a CBE for Philanthropic Services in recognition of his pioneering approaches and achievements. Steve continues to prioritise the ongoing support of the Foundation alongside his business interests and has donated over £300 million to it since 2001.

Our strategic partnerships

Strong relationships lie at the heart of everything we do at the Foundation and we relish working with like-minded strategic partners to best achieve our vision of changing lives for good. Through our work with both large national, and local organisations, we believe that the greatest impact and difference to those in need is realised by working together over the long term. We work alongside our strategic partners to achieve our joint ambitions and goals; we share our expertise, knowledge and best practice, in addition to funding to ensure that our joint impact can be maximised.
