The SJL Foundation was set up in 2019 to support charitable projects that matter to our employees, clients and suppliers.
We are a registered charity responsible for SJL Insurance Services’ corporate responsibility programme, which includes fundraising for charities and good causes.
Our first charity partner is Acorns Children’s Hospice who will receive 50% of the money we raise. The remaining 50% will be awarded as grants to new start-up businesses across the UK.
We organise lots of fundraising events throughout the year including our flagship black-tie ball; and our team are busy planning and taking part in a number of office-based fundraising initiatives including themed dress down days, bake sales and quiz nights.
We also give our clients the opportunity to make a donation to the foundation when they pay for their insurance premiums.
The Foundation provides an excellent opportunity for our clients and suppliers to get involved by taking part in our events, encouraging fundraising in their workplaces and supporting our work.
Our charitable partnerships also give our team the opportunity to volunteer for causes that mean the most to them and we have already donated 150 hours of our time to Acorns.
Employees can also apply to the Foundation, to match funds raised or ask for support for a good cause. Our policy is to contribute to activities in areas that are close to our hearts and align with our values and strategy.
The Foundation has a Board of Trustees which is made up of a mix of staff representatives from within SJL. We also have an enthusiastic Charity Champion Committee.
