About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn new skills. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.

In 2019, the Foundation is planning to spend around £10m on its charitable activities. The vast majority of that expenditure is on people or employment costs. We work on the ground in the UK, Ireland, USA, and India, and we have partnerships with non-profits in 38 other countries.

The Foundation has a mixed funding model, with income coming from gift aid from the Foundation’s wholly owned trading subsidiary; contracted income from governments and their agencies; sponsorship from corporate and other partners; and gifts, grants, and donations from organisations and individuals.

The role will include transactional work, management accountancy and higher-level reporting at month end.
