All accountants are NOT the same
18th January 2018
I have always wanted Grant-Jones to be more than ‘just an accountant,’ and to make a positive impact on the world. It isn't easy, though. Which charity do I choose? How can I be sure that my donation will be reaching the cause I choose and not get lost in administration fees? How do I spread my donations across all of the good causes that I care about?
Then, I found a way. Grant-Jones has become a B1G1 – Business for Good.
B1G1 was founded in 2007 as a way for SMEs to make contributions by linking business activities with carefully selected giving projects from around the world. Every B1G1 project has been carefully assessed to make sure that every penny of our donation reaches the intended project.
Through B1G1 we can do great work for some of the most disadvantaged communities around the world every time we do great work for a client – not just for the festive season, but right the way through the year.
When you do business with us, we will make a donation to one of a range of good causes around the world making an impact on the world as a result. It's that simple. Every B1G1 project has been carefully assessed to make sure that every penny of our donation reaches the intended project. This means that we know that we really are changing lives.
In 2018 we have set ourselves the bold ambition of making 1 million positive impacts on the world. We starting by making a donation to B1G1 projects instead of sending out Christmas cards at the end of 2017. As a result Grant-Jones was able to provide over 600 days of shelter for homeless people in India.
I am really excited about this new initiative and I’m looking forward to the new year knowing that when you do business with us something wonderful happens. B1G1 even keeps track of all the impacts we are having around the world. I just love watching the number go up every week.
