Merton is a borough where people get involved in their communities. With one in five people volunteering and businesses contributing to charitable causes, in many different ways, often the fantastic stories of giving are not talked about. We want to change that as we believe the future is all about community - getting involved, connecting and giving back to the place where you live, work, or do business.
Merton Giving is a charitable venture connecting businesses with charities to help tackle local issues and reduce inequality.
Based on the notion that we can all give something – time, skills as well as money –Merton Giving connects businesses with charities providing opportunities to make a positive difference on your doorstep. We are also fundraising to build the Merton Giving Fund – a fund providing financial support to charities that work tirelessly to help local people.
We understand a tailor-made approach is key to success and will work to provide bespoke solutions to ensure mutually beneficial relationships.
