Charities Programme

Friday, 21 September 2018

We provide financial and in-kind support to a number of charities and not-for-profit organisations. Highlights of our recent activity include:

Major Charity partner – Single Homeless Project (SHP)
The firm provides substantial financial support to a major charity partner - currently SHP - on a rolling two year basis. Over the past year, people from across the firm participated in a range of fundraising activities in aid of SHP, ranging from sponsored runs and cycling days to bake sales and carol services.

Travers Smith Foundation

The Travers Smith Foundation enables us to support even more charities, local communities, and not-for-profit-organisations by issuing small grants and donations. If you'd like to apply for a grant or donation, you can download an application form here:

City YMCA London
We actively support City YMCA London's work in establishing a new 146 bed hostel for homeless young people living in London. In 2016, the Travers Smith Partnership Board took to the streets to complete a Sleep Easy Fundraising Challenge in aid of City YMCA. As well as financial support, we are also providing office furniture and other materials for bedrooms and communal spaces in the hostel.

We support Lex:Lead, a global charity aimed at supporting law students from the world's least economically developed countries. Via an essay competition, the firm awards University scholarships to law students from exceptionally disadvantage backgrounds.

Payroll Giving
We are proud to have been awarded Payroll Giving Gold by the Cabinet Office in recognition of our commitment to charitable giving and philanthropy. The Gold Award is symbol of excellence and is only awarded to employers that have succeeded in generating sustainable income sources for UK charities through Payroll Giving.

Other support
We regularly provide resources and meeting rooms for a number of charities and not-for-profit organisations, including Stonewall, Mind, A4ID, Hereditary Angioedema UK, and Freehold.
