Giving Where We Live
15 November 2021 |
The C2FO Team
C2FO Bristol supports local charities with a Halloween fundraiser and day of giving.
C2FO is dedicated to supporting the communities in which we live and work around the world. C2FO team members in Bristol, England, have come together to support organisations in their backyards and improve the lives of others in their community.
Three local charities with deep roots in Bristol and surrounding areas, including Bristol Children’s Charity, St Peter’s Hospice, and Kinergy, were voted on and chosen by the team to receive ongoing support. “We selected these organisations with the goal of building long-term relationships with them. We plan to help them financially as well as with our time and expertise,” said Gareth Marshall, vice president of operations for C2FO in Europe.
Since selecting these organisations, team members held a Halloween fundraiser and donated the total marketplace revenue generated by accelerated invoices on the platform on Nov. 15 to these charities. The team plans to donate time and treasure throughout the holiday season and beyond, creating lasting community impact where they live and work.
