The bank will be giving its clients the chance to choose a charity to benefit most from its donation.

FCM Choose your Charity Campaign

 

FCM Bank has begun 2015 with a campaign aimed at giving their clients the chance to donate to their preferred charity organisation. The ‘Choose Your Charity’ campaign, will enable current and future clients of FCM Bank to select from a shortlist of charities.

 

“As part of our corporate social responsibility activities, we wanted to put our customers in the driving seat,” says FCM Bank CEO Ron Huggett. “This campaign enables our clients to choose one charity from different beneficiaries chosen by the Bank, and we will contribute on their behalf. We pledge to make a positive contribution to each of our three selected charities, and thus to give them a positive boost for the start to 2015.”

 

The charities chosen by the bank are: Puttinu Cares and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), and they were each chosen for the distinctive work that they do. Puttinu Cares offers a holistic approach of care for families with children suffering from cancer, while the SPCA is responsible for the care and rehoming of abandoned and badly treated animals.

 

Clients of FCM Bank will be contacted in the coming weeks and asked to choose the charity that means the most to them; alternatively they can visit the Bank’s offices in St Julian’s to choose in person. Throughout February and March, new clients of FCM Bank will also be given the chance to take part in the initiative.

 

“Personal service is very much part of our ethos at FCM Bank, so we understand that our clients have different desires when it comes to giving back to our community.

 

“This campaign will give our clients the chance to do exactly that; whether they feel a kinship with causes for the needy, with sick children or with mistreated animals, we have chosen an organisation to match. We now look forward to receiving feedback from our clients, and to then making this donation on their behalf,” Mr Huggett concludes.
