City Giving Day 2020

With larger numbers of city employees working remotely than ever before, this City Giving Day we’re pleased to provide a first-of-a-kind digital solution that allows you, your colleagues and friends to participate in fundraising activities out of the office.

Not everyone knows that The City of London invests significant sums into communities and causes to change lives and make a wider positive impact on society - let’s come together remotely this year to spread the word and raise funds for causes in need.
