We focus our charitable activities principally on the disadvantaged, on the elderly, on young people and on education.
The charities we partner with are supported on the basis of their effectiveness and impact. We also support staff giving and sponsorship through matching donations.
Our ordinary charitable giving for the year to 31 March 2022 totalled £700,000.
In March 2022, 3i Group provided support for the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. We donated £1 million split equally between UNICEF and the Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (“MSF”) Emergency Fund.
In May 2020 3i announced it had set up a £5 million Covid-19 charitable fund, funded from Private Equity and Infrastructure carry and performance fees provided for in the income statement in prior periods. This Fund has now been deployed.
