It is also important to us that we continue to support charitable and community activities in our local area.
In 2015 we donated £750,000 to UK registered charities and community organisations, supporting activities in the arts, education, social and welfare, children and youth, heritage and the environment.
We also encourage our employees in their charitable activities and our overall donations included those which supported:
- Initiatives recommended by employees
- Employees taking part in fund-raising events
- Employees volunteering for charities and community organisations
We do not usually make donations to large national charities. However, we have made exceptions where employees have a personal commitment to a national charity or where we can donate to branches of national charities close to M&G’s offices.
In 2015 we supported over 200 charities and community organisations.
