Proud member of the Pledge 1% scheme
STC&C give 1% of our profits away to charitable causes, every year, under the Pledge 1% scheme to encourage 'early-stage corporate philanthropy'.
Giving a guaranteed amount away annually was one of the reasons for setting up the company and one of the most rewarding parts of what we do. For clients, you can know that a guaranteed 1% of the fee you pay us, every year, goes to a worthy cause.
This year, over the Christmas period, we pledged 1% to:
The Children's Book Trust - For a £10 donation you can send a book to one of the 14,250 children who were vulnerable or in care at Christmas - that's 1,800 more children than last year. For some they will be away from their families for the first time and the Book Trust book can be one of the only presents they receive.
Refuge - Refuge provide support to women and children who have experienced violence or abuse. Children escaping domestic abuse often have to leave where they live with nothing. That means no toys, no presents, no Christmas. Refuge's Christmas Appeal is for Refuge Parcels: bundles that women and children in Refuge's care urgently need or to help bring a smile this Christmas.
If you can, please join us in pledging 1%, or giving what you can to two very worthy causes.
