The Baxi Heating Charitable Trust focuses all charity fundraising and donations that we make into one place. It allows us to be more strategic in the causes we support, helping us to help more people whilst being more transparent in our fundraising.
The money fundraised will be used to support charitable activities designed to benefit the communities in UK and Ireland in which we live and work. There are three key themes that the Baxi Heating Charitable Trust looks to support:
The Baxi Heating Charitable Trust will look to achieve these in four strategic ways:
Baxi Heating will continue to have a national charity while supporting local charities who apply through the Baxi Heating Charitable Trust.
There is one application process, which allows you to select the type of support you’re asking for from the Trust.
Once the application form has been submitted, the administrator of the Baxi Heating Charitable Trust will be notified to confirm if the application does meet our fundraising criteria.
If the application doesn’t meet the criteria, we’ll be in contact to explain why. If the application does, then we’ll put the application before the local committee.
The local committees comprise of Baxi Heating colleagues of all levels who are part of the local CSR teams. There are five local committees – Preston, Warwick, Wokingham, Norwich and Ireland. The local committees will meet four times a year.
The committee will then put the approved application to the board of Trustees to approve. The board of Trustees meet quarterly to approve decisions.
The Baxi Heating Charitable Trust will be overseen by a board of Trustees who work for Baxi Heating UK. They will meet regularly to review progress of the Trust against its objectives and goals. There will also be an Administrator who will oversee the day to day running of the Baxi Charitable Heating Trust.
