Winning the Corporate Foundation Award in the Business Charity Awards is a great feather in the the Axis Foundation’s cap.
The Awards recognise the outstanding support made by UK businesses to charities and voluntary organisations and as such are highly contested, and highly prestigious.
The Foundation recently passed a significant milestone: £1m donated to 110 small, local, impactful causes in its eight year history of giving – and this Award endorses not only the work of the Foundation but also of all who have lent their support on its successful philanthropic journey to this considerable achievement.
The Business Charity Awards’ Judges praised the Foundation variously for its passion, growth, innovation and good employee involvement. They also appreciated the significance of the £1m landmark:
“The £1m donated figure is worth celebrating and a good way to demonstrate the impact of the Foundation.”
