Our history

Zurich's Community Trust was founded in 1973.

The Trust is a registered charity (No. 266983) governed by a Board of Trustees. This is drawn from the senior management of Zurich in the UK, and two external Trustees.

Around £63 million has been donated to a variety of good causes since 1972, with around £500,000 raised by our employees each year. 

During 2008 a total of £1,608,488 was committed mainly through partnerships and local grants, but also includes the matching from fundraising to enable 184 team Challenges with charities to take place.

The Trust is a member of the London Benchmarking Group along with over 100 other companies, using the model to benchmark the value and impact of our programmes. To find out more, click on the link below:
