Ashfield Healthcare Resolution Team- Raising money for Ashfields Worthy Causes fund
All money raised by Ashfield Healthcare Limited’s external fundraising goes to the Company’s worthy causes fund.Ashfield Healthcare Limited [Ashfield] has grown at an outstanding rate since its inception in 1997 and firmly believes that with continued and consistent success comes a corporate responsibility to the local community. In furtherance of this belief, Ashfield supports many projects in and around Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, the location of its flagship head office. If you would like further information on this, a copy of the Company’s Corporate Citizenship Policy is available on request.Ashfield’s worthy causes fund was established to complement Ashfield’s support and assistance of local educational projects and other worthy causes. As mentioned above, Ashfield funds assistance of such projects itself, via generous donations direct from the Company. However, its worthy causes fund provides a separate means of participation in these projects by other businesses and individuals, via Ashfield’s external fundraising.The worthy causes fund is not earmarked for any one particular charity or institution, and the fund itself is not a charity. However, the fund is held separately by the Company, and detailed records are kept of all payments made to it and from it. The Company makes no gain at all from the fund, and any interest earned on the fund is allocated back to the fund.Allocation of payments from the worthy causes fund is decided by Ashfield’s worthy causes fund committee. The committee comprises a number of Ashfield employees at all levels of seniority, who meet on a regular basis (but who do not claim any fees or expenses from the fund). The committee makes decisions as to where to allocate funds by considering requests received by Ashfield from local worthy causes. There is a particular emphasis on educational projects. Over the years, Ashfield has forged excellent links with schools in the Ashby de la Zouch area and is aware that the financial support it has provided for educational projects is most welcome. Decisions of the committee are based on the impact individual projects will have on the local community, and may involve donations to registered charities, educational institutions or non-registered charitable organisations.
