The Initiative

City Giving Day is one day in the year when businesses can unite to celebrate and showcase their charitable and volunteering efforts with employees, clients, suppliers and the public.

Whether you’re a small business or a large corporation, City Giving Day will provide you with a chance to engage with your employees, recruit volunteers, to have fun, raise money and showcase your charity partners/ charitable giving. In fact, it can be anything you want it to be. 

City Giving Day 2018 is on Tuesday 25th September.
