Leicester Giving Day will provide an opportunity to:
Leicester Giving Day is a simple but impactful initiative that will enable companies and educational establishments in Leicester and Leicestershire to showcase their philanthropic support for charities and local communities.
It will encourage participating organisations to set aside one day in the year to reflect on what they already do, or to do more, to help those groups in the city and county that provide vital services to help people in need. It is also a day when invited charities and social enterprises can showcase their work to the general public in ‘charity hubs’ that will be set up in the city.
Companies and schools will be encouraged and supported leading up to the day to enable their employees and pupils to raise money for the charity of their choice, or to offer practical, in kind, support.
Embark CSR was created to enable business owners to connect a purpose to their profit, by helping to deliver activities that contribute to improving communities, backed with strategies for business growth. Our mission is to increase the number of businesses that develop and implement company CSR strategies; showcase and achieve recognition of the benefits derived by company led CSR activities, and to increase the number of corporate partnerships within the region.
Benefits of being involved
Leicester Giving Day will be a day that impacts lots of different interests in our community. Businesses, schools, charities and members of the public will all be able to take something from the day.
