Welcome to CASCAID
CASCAID brings together colleagues from around the asset management industry (and friends and family) to raise money for charity. After a successful 2017, when we topped £2.35million for Cancer Research, CASCAID is now fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Our fundraising year is June 2018 to June 2019.
CASCAID is led by our Ambassadors – individuals who undertake challenges, organise events and galvanise others to raise money. Fundraising events are on an individual basis, within teams, on a company level and across the industry. CASCAID aims to get lots of people supporting this amazing charity in many different ways. Our aim is to contribute to the new cardiac catheter theatre for GOSH – their current one is not fit for purpose.
See our Ambassador list here. Our Ambassadors are drawn from a range of fund management, wealth management, advisory and supporting firms.
CASCAID is inclusive – everyone is welcome. It’s not a corporate cheque-writing exercise (although corporate donations are very welcome!). It’s about ordinary people rolling their sleeves up, giving their time and effort for great causes. If you’d like to join in the fun, drop us a line.
Whilst our primary goal is to provide vital funds for GOSH, we also hope to bring the industry together to network, socialise and have fun, all in an inclusive, compliance-friendly way. We’ll get together for events like the Marketing Mix, the Hyde Park Fun Run, our two Gala Dinners and lots more. It’s a great chance for us all to spend time with clients, peers, colleagues and friends, with each and every occasion helping to save lives. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like further information.
Of course, we recognise that most individuals and companies already have significant charity commitments. CASCAID is not about replacing these – it’s about achieving more. Let’s get together to do a little extra.
Over £550k so far (since June 2018)
