The Clarksons annual Charity Giving Day event took place on the 9th September, raising money for The Clarkson Foundation. We had 23 teams from 11 global offices taking part in an epic virtual cycling endurance race. Find out more about the event and how you can show your support.

A force for good

As a collective force for good, it matters to us that we make a positive difference to the world we live in and the people we share it with.

This is the first year of The Clarkson Foundation and its creation allows us to amplify our charitable giving. As a registered charity, we are committed to helping create meaningful, lasting change around the world.

Clarksons people have always been generous and charitable. In the past decade alone, we've raised over £1.6m for a range of different causes. With this force for good propelling us forwards, we created The Clarkson Foundation so that our shared desire to achieve more could have greater impact.

As an independent charity we are able to give in a more effective and focused way; we live by the governance of charitable status and our running costs remain at zero. In doing so, we contribute as much as we can to the causes we carefully select to support.

As well as fundraising efforts, The Clarkson Foundation enables us to channel our experience, expertise and time so that a tangible difference can be felt. Regardless of location, what matters most is that we can make a positive impact around the world, leaving a legacy that we can all be proud of.

The Clarkson Foundation would love to hear from you. If you know of any causes that the foundation may be able to help with, get in touch.
