Slaughter and May wins Community Investment Award

Slaughter and May is pleased to announce that its Corporate Responsibility programme has been recognised by the GivX Community Value Awards 2018.

The firm was placed amongst the top 25 participants in this year’s GivX assessment, which included companies such as National Grid, Kellogg’s, Deutsche Bank and ITV. Nearly 90 companies took part in GivX this year.

The GivX framework is a simple, standardised way for companies to place a value on their giving and compare their performance with other organisations. A GivX point is equivalent to £1 and valued in-line with the ‘Community Value’ approach that focuses on the replacement cost of gifts and support for charities.

Dominic Robertson, Partner and Chair of the Corporate Responsibility Committee at Slaughter and May said:

“We’ve got a long history of partnering with community organisations to make a positive social impact.  This is the first time we’ve been able to benchmark our giving against our peers and we’re delighted with the recognition from this award.”

Ben Darlington Head of Membership Services at Benefacto, founders of GivX said:

“We are delighted with the huge increase in participation in GivX this year. More than three times as many companies have taken part and this allows us to provide them with an unprecedented level of insight into what good community investment practice looks like.

“We believe that by improving the quality of the management information available to CR practitioners, GivX will allow companies to build on both the quality and scale of their community investment.
