A Huddersfield-based accountancy practice has partnered with Global Business Giving Initiative (B1G1) to fund charitable projects around the world.
Every month, Crowther Chartered Accountants will select one of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals to support with every business transaction. From April onwards, every transaction and its activities will be linked to fighting poverty, hunger, poor education, climate change and many other worthy causes.
Founded in 2017, B1G1 works with more than 2,700 businesses to make giving more effective. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 passes 100% of the giving to the nominated projects and helps small to medium-sized businesses achieve social impact by embedding ‘giving’ activities into everyday business operations and transactions.
Established in 1995, Crowther Chartered Accountants provides accountancy, taxation, audit, financial mentoring and bookkeeping support to clients across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK.
Commenting on the partnership with B1G1, managing director of Crowther Chartered Accountants, Steve Crowther said:
“We firmly believe in working closely and helping our clients on a day-to-day basis but wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could help the wider world also on a day-to-day to basis? B1G1 allows us to do this. We’ve done a lot locally for the community but extending this to have a global impact is something that I feel businesses need to take responsibility for, if they can.
“Our clients now know that in doing business with us, they are helping change thousands of people’s lives across the world. We’re passionate about elevating human potential to bring positive change in people’s lives so they can experience the best version of themselves.”
Paul Dunn, B1G1‘s Chairman added:
“We’re really thrilled to have the team at Crowther’s leading the way on this. The Sustainable Business Development Goals (which we have to meet by 2030) are specifically designed for businesses to make a positive difference to our world. They’re not just a pathway for business; they’re a pathway for humanity. And again, we’re really thrilled to have the team at Crowther’s encouraging their clients to join them in this most important aspect of business.”
