We’re excited to announce that ReachOut and Macquarie Group have been shortlisted for the Longstanding Partnership Award at this year’s Business Charity Awards.
Taking place on Thursday 19 May, the Business Charity Awards recognise and reward the partnerships between outstanding corporate and not-for-profit organizations, and celebrate their achievements.
Rachel Engel, Head of the Macquarie Group Foundation in EMEA, said: “We’re thrilled to be shortlisted for our longstanding strategic partnership with ReachOut. Over the past 10 years we’ve worked closely together with a shared vision to provide mentoring, practical advice, and equitable opportunities for young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds across the UK. At Macquarie, our purpose is to ‘empower people to innovate and invest for a better future’ and we want that future to offer something for everyone.”
Bejal Shah, ReachOut’s CEO, said: “We are so proud of our strategic partnership with Macquarie Group, which started via a volunteer and has grown organically over the years to become our leading corporate partnership. For us, it is essential that we work with companies that share our vision and mission to improve the lives of young people and tackle social inequalities, to ensure a better future for them and their communities. Macquarie Group have gone above and beyond over the years to support our strategic growth, and our long-term partnership has helped shape the charity ReachOut is today. We are delighted that this has been recognised and shortlisted for a Business Charity Award and look forward to celebrating this in May.”
