'Zurich Cares' is the unifying banner that captures the spirit of involvement of Zurich employees across the UK through the giving of time, money and professional skills to benefit charities supporting those less  fortunate. The 'Zurich Cares' fund is half funded by generous donations from employees (over £400,000 in 2017) and is matched through the annual business donation to the Zurich Community Trust.

Employee engagement is at the very heart of all 'Zurich Cares' activity - whether this be through volunteering, fundraising or sitting on one of the many 'Zurich Cares' grants committees across the UK.
