RESIDENTS across the West Midlands and Warwickshire are being urged to nominate a charity to receive a financial boost as part of Benefact Group’s Movement For Good Awards.
The organisation is giving away £120,000 as part of its annual 12 Days of Giving Christmas campaign.
For 12 days, in the run up to Christmas, the specialist financial services group is giving £1,000 to ten charities each day – with 120 charities in total benefiting from a festive financial boost.
Nominations are now open so people across the county are being urged to nominate a cause they care about to give them a chance of receiving a share of the award money.
Mark Hews, the Benefact Group’s chief executive, said: “We’re delighted to be giving away another £120,000 in valuable donations to causes around the country.
“We know charities across the country are struggling, and for many the festive season is a critical time.
“We’re asking residents to take a few minutes of their time to nominate a cause they especially care about.”
Benefact Group is the third largest corporate donor in the UK and has ambitions to be the biggest.
Owned by a charity, all of its available profits go to good causes, and the more the group grows, the more it can give.
Mr Hews added: “We know £1,000 can make a huge difference to the incredible work charities do and we’re looking forward to seeing how this financial boost will change lives for the better.”
Benefact Group has donated over £200million to charitable causes since 2014 and aims to reach £250million in donations by 2025.
Earlier this year, 300 £1,000 awards were donated, followed by £480,000 of larger grants in October.
Movement for Good is funded by EIO plc, part of the Benefact Group.
Draws will take place every weekday between today (Friday, December 1) and December 18 and nominating is easy using the online form at movementforgood.com – winners are drawn at random and the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
