Bobath Scotland needs to raise £8.50 of every £10 we spend to deliver our services and support to children and adults with cerebral palsy. We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with TAM Asset Management in a new initiative that allows individuals to invest their money while raising funds for our therapy centre.
Established and managed by TAM Asset Management, Greenfinch is a new wealth management platform that allows users to invest in a range of mainstream and ethical portfolios, either directly via a general investment account (GIA) or via an individual savings account (ISA).
Through TAM's You Give We Give (YGWG) scheme, Greenfinch users can then choose to donate a slice of their annual profits to Bobath Scotland. Investors are also given the opportunity to make an initial donation when they open their accounts.
In addition, TAM Asset Management - an award-winning specialist in discretionary investment management - matches the donation with an equal percentage from their annual fee.
Other charities that have officially partnered in the scheme include The Archway Project, HEART UK – the Cholesterol Charity and the Willow Foundation. So far, Greenfinch has raised £53,000 for charity.
Virginia Anderson, Head of Fundraising at Bobath Scotland said: “We are delighted to be partnering with TAM Asset Management on this innovative scheme. Greenfinch customers really can change the lives of children with cerebral palsy, with TAM Asset Management adding to every donation you give from your returns.”
Lester Petch, CEO of TAM Asset Management, described You Give We Give as “a totally unique way for charities to engage with their supporters and raise funds.”
He added: “It allows investors to combine their environmental and social considerations with strategies designed to deliver long-term capital growth. We are confident that this approach will provide ethically minded investors with the investment solutions they have been looking for, while also opening up fruitful new fundraising opportunities for our charity partners.”
