City Giving Day to blend online and offline philanthropy

The Lord Mayor’s Appeal’s City Giving Day 2020, taking place in September, has adapted to the issue of COVID-19, and this year businesses and employees are encouraged to think about how they can run activities online and using digital platforms.

In 2019, 424 organisations came together to recognise all this remarkable work. By joining in they inspired up to 5,000 new volunteers to offer their time, raised more than £500,000 for good causes and highlighted some of the exceptional charitable activity that takes place throughout the year.

Caroline Wright, CEO of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal says: “City Giving Day brings together the City of London and beyond to celebrate all the fantastic philanthropic and volunteering work that has been done throughout the year. It is a day of celebration and this year it will be more important than ever to reflect back on the past few months and applaud and celebrate the collaboration during this crisis and the support that organisations have given through various channels to their communities and frontline workers.”
