Clarify Foundation Launched
Clarify, the sales cycle development company, has launched the Clarify Foundation, a registered charity founded by the company that aims to raise money for community schemes in the UK and in Uganda. As well as raising money, Clarify employees will be directly involved in working on completing these charitable projects.
The Clarify Foundation, brainchild of CEO Claire Edmunds, is based on three primary principles – giving money, raising funds, giving time. Claire commented “I wanted to allocate some money to spend in a way which makes a meaningful contribution and is away from the world of selling and IT. I wanted to reward my top performers with a really different experience that gives something back.” The first goal for the charity is to raise £10,000 by May 2011 to donate to causes in Uganda. The raised funds will be spent on local projects such as water tanks or sustainable farm infrastructure. As a reward for high performance, a Clarify team will travel to Uganda in 2011 to get involved in finishing a project such as building new school classrooms or teachers’ accommodation.
A committee of Clarify employees is coordinating a jam packed schedule of fundraising events, including the Three Peaks Challenge, bike rides, casino nights, dress down days, as well as a tuck shop in the office! Jessica Wheeler, Clarify’s HR Manager and head of the Clarify Foundation committee has said “I am so impressed with the enthusiasm, dedication and organisation that our people have shown in kicking off the Clarify Foundation. Our strength as a professional team has translated to delivering great results for a fantastic cause.”
