About the Covid-19 Support Fund:
Why should firms donate to the Covid-19 Support Fund?
This is an unprecedented crisis, and by acting together, our sector can show its collective support and help the country get through this. The Fund enables anyone who wants to help to get their support to people quickly while minimising complex and costly administration and maximising the benefit of the donation.
Can charities or other organisations apply for funding?
The Fund currently uses umbrella charity organisations to distribute funding to get the help to people quickly at a time of urgent need.
Please note that we are not therefore accepting funding bids from charities. We are working with independent advisers, who are helping us identify how the remaining donations from the fund can have the most impact in helping those affected by the Covid-19 crisis and who will then set up partnerships with charities on our behalf.
Who is donating to this Fund?
The Fund is drawn from voluntary donations across the long-term savings and insurance sector and donations can be either public or private.
How can I donate to the Fund?
Firms from the insurance and long-term sector can donate to the Fund. To learn more, please contact us: email@example.com
The Covid-19 Support fund is working in partnership with the Charities Aid Foundation, and a network of partners, including the National Emergencies Trust.
