We are proud to have helped raise millions of pounds for good causes over the past 20 years by directing unwanted shares and cash entitlements to our charity partner Sharegift. These are largely generated through our Corporate Actions work, and have benefited thousands of national and local good causes.
Every permanent Equiniti employee based in the UK is entitled to take two Volunteer Days out of the office each year, to support their chosen charity or community project. Employees can choose to volunteer individually or as a team for larger projects. Causes supported by our colleagues in 2017 range from beach cleans with Surfers Against Sewage and conservation work with the National Trust to caring for animals at local shelters.
Last year we raised £61,000 through our Corporate JustGiving page following its May launch. This year we aim to reach £100,000 raised for causes supported by our colleagues.
A special cause
We employ over 1,500 people in Sussex and local children’s hospice, Chestnut Tree House, holds a special place in the hearts of our colleagues. Last year, our fundraising paid for two full days of Chestnut’s care services. Our teams also carried out grounds maintenance work for the hospice through corporate volunteer days.
