Webmart’s charitable giving so far:
Charitable giving is one of Webmart’s cornerstone motivations. We’re a fortunate bunch in all kinds of ways, so there’s no better aim than helping those less fortunate around us; and we feel the best way to do this is by supporting registered charities.
We call this initiative CCCP – or Webmart’s Community and Charitable Cash Pot.
The amount of money Webmart invests is a very simple equation based on the amount of interest we earn from our cash in the bank, as determined by the financial auditors. The logic is that we haven’t actually done anything to earn the interest, but it’s a by-product of doing what we should be doing well, i.e. managing our cash effectively.
So the more we get in interest, the more we give to charitable causes. Hopefully interest rates will shoot up soon so we can give even more!
Of course many Webmarteers like to take things further. So we have numerous levels of Webmart-sponsored charitable giving including volunteering a day at their charity of choice (along with a £250 donation) and donating to paid, longer-term sabbaticals for Webmarteers who have been with the company for many years.
We now have a new pot of money to donate. So if you’re a charity or worthy cause, please feel free to fill in the brief application form below.
Every registered charity who applies will receive a £100 donation*.
Good luck and THANKS for doing good things!
In 2016-17 our donations totalled £24,839.
