Givergy Gives Back Through A National Competition!
Givergy employees are renowned for taking part in fundraising initiatives, from trekking up a mountain in Stok Kangri (India) in aid of British Heart Foundation, to project managing a volunteer organisation in South Africa. Its part of their ethos to encourage and support their employees to get involved, which is why each employee is gifted 2 days a year to carry out any volunteer work or activity in aid of charity.
