We encourage our staff to engage in their communities and actively seek to support organisations in our local community. We recognise that choosing to give a charitable donation of any size to any cause is a very personal decision and we respect that at JM Finn, however, we also believe that a firm of our size, reputation and standing should pool its resources to help where it can.
Our charitable objective is to raise funds for three chosen charities per annum, where at least one of those charities benefits the community locally to JM Finn’s head office in London. In order to provide meaningful funds and to make a difference, we typically look to support each of our chosen charities for a three year period.
We look to raise funds via a variety of efforts organised by the CSR committee, including quiz nights and cake sales. The largest source of annual funds comes from the silent auction and raffle held at the staff Christmas party each year. All funds raised across these events are split 3-ways between the chosen charities.
Many of our staff engage in individual fund raising activities outside of their work and JM Finn is delighted to support these endeavours, where it can with a matched funding program.
Across our regional offices, we have endeavoured to participate in local events that support local causes. Two such examples are JM Finn’s three-year sponsorship of the Girl’s Night Out in support of St Nicholas’ Hospice in Bury St Edmunds and the three-year sponsorship of the Hampshire Country & Garden Festival, which raises funds for the Hampshire Medical Fund.
