Charity sector insights
Our Charity Risk Barometer 2019 uncovers key challenges facing charities, helps you capitalise on opportunities and reap major rewards.
We’re actively championing innovation through our £50,000 grants, giving charities the backing they need to propel their plans forward and helping to turn creative ideas into practical solutions that benefit society.
Charitable giving is at the heart of what we do – and has been for over 130 years. Today, we’re the only financial services group that exists to give its profits to charity. We’re proud to be doing things differently. To be giving back to the communities we serve and championing the issues that really matter to them – working together to build a movement for good.
Through our Movement for Good awards, we’re giving £1m to charities. We want to put our giving directly into the hands of remarkable organisations (like yours perhaps) that are changing people’s lives for the better.
Our £1m giving programme has two funding categories - £1,000 donations to 500 charities and £50,000 grants to 10 charities. By splitting the awards into two categories, we are allocating the funds in a way that charities tell us will have the greatest impact.
We were amazed by the response from charities and their supporters. And we know what an enormous difference £1,000 will make, and has already made, to a huge number of charities.
