A Charitable Earth was a charity founded by Dorothy McShane, who was a former companion of the Doctor. It was founded to help orphans and underprivileged children, just as the Doctor had helped Ace when they first met. (AUDIO: In Remembrance)

The headquarters of A Charitable Earth were located in London, opposite to the Tower of London. (WC: The Promise) Ace chose the location, despite immediate and vociferous opposition to its construction, as it provided a clear view down onto the private roadway which led to UNIT headquarters, nestled within the Tower. She lived in a penthouse on the 18th floor.

Although most of what she did was charitable, Ace sometimes used the charity as a cover for her own ideas, salvaging the Squidget whilst Sanaul, her business manager, claimed that they were using the lake near Wasdale Head for testing 'a new generation of inflatable boats and specialised diving equipment'. Although this was the case, Ace also recieved the Hypergreen from a startup which she had funded in Malaysia. (PROSE: At Childhood's End)

While looking up the Doctor's other companions, Sarah Jane Smith found out about Dorothy, discovering the charity had raised billions of pounds. (TV: Death of the Doctor)

As of 2010, another of the Doctor's former companions, Melanie Bush, worked with A Charitable Earth, providing computers to schools in Africa. (PROSE: Death of the Doctor)
