Weʼre raising £3,000 to Blenheim Chalcot is joining other London businesses in the City Giving Day.
- London, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This year for the first time Blenheim Chalcot is joining other London businesses in the City Giving Day. It is one day a year dedicated to uniting all the 3000 staff from across the Blenheim Chalcot portfolio together to focus our skills, time and fundraising efforts on supporting causes that matter.
The raised money will be equally split between four of our charities to support their meaningful work:
Onside Youth Zones
Giving young people aged 8–19 years old (25 for those with a disability) somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to in their leisure time; occupying their bodies and minds with fun activities, learning new skills and socialising in a safe, positive way.
OnSide Youth Zones are there for young people in deprived areas, where the alternative for many is spending their evenings on the streets or isolated in their bedrooms, surfing the internet.
Crisis Text Line
Crisis Text Line is the free, 24/7, confidential text message service for people in crisis.
Every texter is connected with a Crisis Counselor, a real-life human being trained to bring texters from a hot moment to a cool calm through active listening and collaborative problem solving. All of Crisis Text Line's Crisis Counselors are volunteers, donating their time to helping people in crisis.
Coach Core - Royal Foundation
Coach Core is an apprenticeship programme that helps young people (16-24 years old) who are not in education, employment or training to build a career.
Motivated by the success and impact of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Their Royal Highnesses
understood the power and impact sport can have on people – especially young people. With this in mind they sought to develop a new programme using sport to help improve life chances.
Each site where Coach Core operates targets those most in need. While some areas may have pockets of affluence, they also have some of the highest levels of youth unemployment and social deprivation. By bringing together professional clubs, key sporting organisations and multiple businesses that provide employment places and create opportunities, Coach Core is producing well-rounded sports professionals and role models for children in their communities.
British Asian Trust
The British Asian Trust was founded in 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales to tackle widespread poverty and hardship in South Asia. He engaged with the entrepreneurs of the British Asian diaspora, linking them with social entrepreneurs and grassroots interventions in the region.
The mission of British Asian Trust is to unlock the potential of disadvantaged people in South Asia by maximising the impact and support from the Asian diaspora and beyond.
