Cheshire IFA sets £1 million charity goal

Cheshire-based Equilibrium Asset Management aims to raise £1 million via its charitable foundation by 2028. Established in 2010, the firm’s foundation initially aimed to raise £250,000 by the end of 2020. The company has comfortably surpassed that target, and is now aiming higher.

To date the foundation has raised over £280,000 to support causes including Age UK, cancer research and local hospices. For these efforts and others, Equilibrium won a corporate social responsibility award at the 2019 Greater Manchester Business Awards.

Managing partner Gaynor Rigby (pictured) said the importance of charitable activity was a core part of the firm’s culture. ‘Giving back is part of the very fabric of Equilibrium,’ she said. ‘We do a lot of work through the foundation and always emphasise the importance of charity work to the team.’

Equilibrium is about to launch a ‘give-as-you-earn’ scheme for its staff to donate to the foundation every month. These donations will then be topped up by the company.
