Making a difference overseas

In addition to the national and local grants programme, in 2017 a total of £75,000 was donated to causes across the world through the 'Zurich Cares' Overseas Grants Programme.  

Who benefits?

A variety of UK-registered charities operating overseas benefit every year, addressing a variety of issues in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world.  

The application window for 2018 is now closed.

The Overseas Grants Programme is open for 2018 applications between 1 February and 31 March.  

The grant applications are reviewed and decisions made by an Overseas Grants Committee, consisting of Zurich employee volunteers from across the UK.    

The committee holds a series of meetings from May to September every year.  The deadline for Overseas Grants Applications will be 31 March 2018 with funding decisions announced in October 2018.
