CASCAID brings together colleagues from around the asset management industry (and friends and family) to raise money for charity.
In previous years, CASCAID has raised over £4 million for Cancer Research and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Looking forward, we have chosen the NSPCC as the beneficiary for 2022, aiming to help the thousands of abused and vulnerable children around the UK.
CASCAID is led by our Ambassadors (see list here) – individuals from a range of fund management, wealth management, advisory and supporting firms 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.
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 the NSPCC, 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 social events, quiz nights, fun runs, 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 support young 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.
The 2022 Challenge
The last two years have been devastating for children
134% increase in mental health referrals
3x increase in Childline calls about sexual abuse within the family
53% increase in domestic violence
Without support, this could derail their lives
75% of mental health issues start before age 18
2/3 people in drug abuse treatment reported abuse in childhood
Half of prisoners reported abuse in childhood
I want to thank the counsellor for saving my life. This has not been the best year, people have come and gone from my life, but Childline has always been there.
