Corporate charity giving

TWCM 2016 has two options for Corporates and their employees to contribute towards charity:

a. CEO run – CEOs of leading companies will participate in a run to celebrate the spirit of running for a cause. They will pledge an amount for charity and galvanize support from their employees to contribute towards charity as a gesture of solidarity and support.You can view the list of CEOs who will be a part of this initiative here.

b. Charity BIBs for employees based on contribution of a specific amount by the company.
