channelcentral’s Charity Committee was formed following a company-wide meeting in February 2016 and two charities have been supported since its creation.
Our Charity Selection CriteriaStaff feel it is important to support two charities, local to each of channelcentral’s offices: Braintree, Essex and Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. As a small company, channelcentral wants to focus its efforts, working with smaller charities to make a greater difference to their operations. Staff have also wanted, as far as possible, to connect each charity’s interests with the company’s own skills and expertise.
Our Charitable GivingVarious fundraising activities take place throughout the year, with the company matching staff fundraising for selected events. In addition to monetary fundraising, each staff member can take one working day a year, away from the workplace, to undertake charitable work meeting the criteria of channelcentral’s charity policy. Staff can also submit a proposal for surplus computer equipment to be donated for charitable causes, where the donation will meet some, or all of the company’s charity selection criteria.
Our CharitiesWe are delighted to support SpecialEffect and SnapCharity! Here is a little information about each of them:
