The '.community' is a programme at MoneySuperMarket.com which is intended to increase the company’s links to the local community. As well as making donations and grants to local charities the '.community' team will be looking at other ways of getting involved, including employee’s donating time and expertise. The programme is run by a group of employees from across the company who have volunteered to give up some time to drive the initiative. The company has allocated a budget to support local charities which has been lodged with the Charities Aid Foundation. Where possible they look to fund a particular item, such as new toys for a playgroup or computers for schools rather than just making a general cash donation. They also aim to visit all their causes and make the donation in person.
Each year their employees select a charity of the year. For 2013 and 2014 employees have decided to fund raise for 'Mind.' To date they have raised a massive £48,351 and still have a number of fund raising events before the end of the year. The company and employees are committed to making a difference and have taken part in a number of fund raising events throughout the year including; Royal Parks half marathon, Cross country Marathon, Three Peaks challenge, Chester Dragon Boat race and Major Series. They also have a team of employees who will be climbing Kilimanjaro in February.
