Corporate Social Responsibility is no longer an activity just for large corporations, the Ashford Corporate Giving Fund pools donations from Ashford businesses of any size to help support their local community.
The Fund brings together socially responsible local businesses and connects them with charities making a real difference in the local community to help those most in need.
Each member makes an annual charitable donation, which is pooled to create a collective fund. It is this collective and proactive approach that enables the organisations to work together to make a bigger impact in the community. Through the Ashford Corporate Giving Fund, Corporate Social Responsibility is no longer an activity just for large, multinational corporations. Businesses and individuals of any size can play their part in effective local giving and supporting their community.
Members hear directly from the people and projects working at the grassroots in the community at a networking event. This is a terrific opportunity for local businesses to hear first-hand from those working with the most pressing issues facing the local community and to discuss long-term needs and solutions. As well as distributing grants, the Ashford Corporate Giving Fund is an important opportunity for networking, developing local partnerships across the sectors and exploring in-kind support opportunities.
