Sensitive Word - FOUNDATION

What Companies House say about using the word FOUNDATION
names that include any of these words will be refused if they unjustifyably give the impression that the company has charitable status. If the company is limited by guarantee and has a non-profit distribution clause in the memorandum of association, then the name will normally be approved.
