Meet the team

Matthew Gould

Hello, I'm Matthew Gould

Insight & Impact Specialist (The EQ Foundation)

Matt returned to the UK in 2019 after travelling the world on and off over a 3-year period with an aim to help those in need. Deeply affected by his first-hand experiences with people struggling in developing countries, he came back with a passion to make a difference. While working for the New Zealand government's Primary Industries department he saw how farmers were overwhelmed by a national biosecurity incident - and was part of a team that helped them recover financially. Matt maintains the Giving is Great website, doing due diligence on charities' impact measurements, and developing new ways to engage potential donors. He also advises The EQ Foundation on its choice of annual grantees, considering the long-term impact of interventions on beneficiaries to make the best decisions. Outside of work Matt enjoys attending live music events and is a keen basketball player. He also enjoys long distance running and has completed charity runs with EQ colleagues to raise money for grantees of The EQ Foundation.
