West Midlands Combined Authority – Mayor’s Giving Day – Voluntary Sector Organisations

On September 22nd 2020, the Mayor’s Giving Day is back for a second year, but this time we’re going virtual!

The day is a simple and impactful initiative that calls for businesses across the West Midlands to come to together to support local charities, community groups and good causes.

As a charity you will have access to a range of Virtual Workshops with key topics ranging from Marketing and Comms to Measuring Impact. There will be Charity Forums, where you will have an opportunity to talk to a panel of businessmen and women from the West Midlands region on any concerns and challenges you may have.

The ‘Giving Day’ strides to build a sense of pride and purpose in the region by showcasing existing work and encouraging us all to do a little extra. Born from the Lord Mayor’s City Day in London it enables companies and employees to celebrate and showcase their philanthropic and volunteering achievements and encourage others to get involved.
