About Rogare

What is Rogare?

It was devised and founded by Ian MacQuillin in 2014 and was provided with its first home by Adrian Sargeant at Jen Shang at the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University, where it sat from April 2014 until March 2019. In March 2019 Rogare was established as a independent organisation, constitute as Community Interest Company, a form of incorporation for social enterprises.

Rogare Council

Rogare does not have a board of directors. Instead, it has a Council comprised of our most active and committed volunteers. One standing group of the Council – The Governance and Oversight Group – is fulfils the role that would normally be performed by a board of directors or trustees, such as ensuring financial transparency and propriety. Both the Council and the Governance and Oversight Group are chaired by Heather Hill
