George Davies Foundation

GD Foundation

The partners and staff at George Davies are committed to helping local charities and good causes but we recognised that with so many out there the rewards of our fundraising efforts were being spread too thinly to make a very big impact. So, we set up the George Davies Foundation, a charitable trust that the partners contribute to each year and the staff committee adds to by co-ordinating fundraising events throughout the year for clients and staff. 

Each year staff are given the opportunity to nominate a charity to benefit from our endeavours and the committee which is made up of a cross section of staff from all areas of the firm is responsible for growing the foundation pot each year to raise as much money as possible for the nominated charity.

See the links below to the various charities we have supported.
