About Refinitiv Charities

Our Mission

Delivering sustainable social impact, through dedicated support to projects and organisations aligned to our annual focus areas.

How we do it

By raising funds through corporate philanthropy and social innovation initiatives, and providing high-impact grants to a wide range of global, national and local not-for-profit organizations.

Our focus areas for 2020

We based our focus areas this year on these four UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our grant types

  1. 1

    Grants ranging between $25,000 and $100,000, to power dedicated campaigns for a minimum of 12 months. These campaigns are normally exclusively funded by Refinitiv Charities, but funding partners will be considered in compelling circumstances.

  2. 2

    $5,000 grants intended to support existing charitable organizations and projects, to unlock further impact and opportunities. On some occasions, an additional bonus grant might be awarded mid-cycle if expectations have been exceeded.

  3. 3

    Use our proprietary TicketAid platform to raise funds through sponsorship, auctions or our global ticket and events marketplace. 100% of funds raised through TicketAid are granted through Refinitiv Charities to your chosen not-for-profit organization.

How you can apply

We’re not prescriptive on format, so be imaginative and send us your proposal, in no more than two pages, to refinitivcharities@refinitiv.com.

Make sure you include:

  • Charity overview: what you do, where you are, whether your activity is local, national or global
  •  Scope: what type of grant you are applying for, its intended use and when you need it
  •  Remember our goal is to fund projects that maximize impact, so make sure your application is:
    1. Defined
    2.  Aligned to at least one of our focus areas
    3.  Measurable
    4.  Fully, or significantly, attributable to the grant received from Refinitiv Charities
