Giving Glasgow, our charitable fund has been providing donations to charities and good causes throughout the G postcode area for several years. Since 2016, over 78 organisations have benefited from over £57,000 in donations.
The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted just how essential it is to support the work of local good causes, grassroots organisations and charities. With vulnerable communities feeling the effects of the pandemic most acutely, the board of directors decided to forego part of their remuneration to donate it towards Giving Glasgow, allowing us to help many more people.
During the last three months, Giving Glasgow has donated over £15,000 to various charities and good causes, positively impacting 2,750 people during the coronavirus crisis.
Our help hasn’t gone unnoticed, with many of the organisations sharing their donations on social media, and the story even getting covered in The Glasgow Times.
