Philanthropic giving is most often associated with individual gifts, but it is much broader than that, with different mechanisms for giving, including donations from corporate Foundations. Here, Zara Idris, ESG & Foundation Manager, shares more about the work of the Lords Group Foundation.
Supporting our colleagues
We have a charitable workforce, and we want to harness and encourage the personal passion and commitment of many Lords colleagues to fundraising and charitable activities, offering match funding for any charitable initiatives by colleagues, up to a value of £1,000. The Foundation also provides opportunities for our colleagues to determine how we support their local communities and causes that they care about, with teams identifying partner projects close to their branches. Through the work of the Foundation we aim to ensure that Lords Group Trading is an engaging and rewarding place to work, where our colleagues can thrive and contribute to their local communities.
Recent examples of projects supported include New Langley Community Association who bought two new cookers for their Lunch Club for older people. Tools and materials were donated to Habitat for Humanity’s Upcycling Workshop, which upcycles furniture for vulnerable groups to transform empty spaces into homes.
