Our initiatives

City Giving Day

As part of our commitment to create a fair society, City Giving Day is a unique event which unites businesses in the City and beyond by celebrating the positive impact they have for their charity partners and their local communities, through fundraising and volunteering.

Since its launch in 2015, City Giving Day has grown year on year with 571 companies involved in 2023. Our aim is to inspire even more organisations to get involved in 2024, not only in London but in other cities around the UK.
