Chubb in the UK

Chubb in the Community

Chubb strongly believes in supporting the local communities in which we do business, with our philanthropic focus mostly targeted at children, health and safety and environmental projects.

Our community work in the UK includes a long established employee/company charity matching scheme, through which the company matches funds raised in support of various registered charity projects.

AREAS OF SUPPORT

Previous donations have been made to charities in the following categories:

  • Cancer
  • Heart stroke
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Mental conditions
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Physical handicaps
  • People with learning difficulties
  • Elderly people

However, we also value and will consider supporting projects and charities outside these categories that encourage good citizenship, help disadvantaged people and generally add value to Chubb's local communities.

Our preferred method of support to these charitable activities will be through cash donations; however, other methods of support may be considered subject to the circumstances of the request, such as donation of redundant equipment.

Areas we will not consider supporting fall generally into the following categories:

  • Medical research/industrial research using animals
  • Political campaigns – political activities
  • Causes to support warring factions
  • Blood sports activities
  • Religious sects

  • Give details of how and on what specifically the funding will be spent
  • Confirm what other funding has already been secured for the request

Additional criteria include the following:
