One Community is now part of the online causes portal ‘Benevity’. It is a workplace giving scheme to which large corporations sign up to raise funds for local and national charities.
Steve McCleery who is an employee for Apple, decided to fundraise for us in a Fight4Lives event which led to us being a part of the Benevity group of charitable causes. Steve came across us as his wife Lucy is the choir leader for Eastleigh Young Carers and this is the project he is fundraising for.
Benevity is the global leader in online workplace giving and matching. They help corporations fulfil their philanthropic goals. There are over 2 million users around the world, and over 100,000 donations are processed for charities annually. So as well as Steve’s kind fundraising, One Community is now searchable for any corporations who use the portal, which means if a large company locally is doing some fundraising they can find us when they search Eastleigh.
