Our approach

CSR is an integral part of our culture. We’re a small community making a big impact and our commitment to CSR is no exception.

Driven by our purpose to make great financial decision making a breeze for everyone, our CSR strategy, CtM4Good, was launched in 2021 and encourages everyone to work, grow and win together. We’re about making a positive impact, fearlessly focused on doing the right thing.

Our strategy concentrates on three key areas of social impact and is directly linked to our purpose:

1. Financial education- our Partnership with MyBnk
2. Skills sharing – Meerkat your Skills
3. Volunteering – Playing my Part

Our charity partnership

We want to play a role in supporting financial education and inclusion across the UK and our partnership with MyBnk is something we’re incredibly proud of. Together we’re helping to directly impact the social mobility of the next generation.

So far, we’ve taken part in the Big CtM Sleepout which raised £42,000, we’ve hosted face-to-face sessions of MyBnk’s Money Twist programmes to colleagues’ children in our Meerkat Money Schools, we’ve volunteered at MyBnk’s Money Houses, our colleagues have got involved in skills sharing opportunities as well as many of them also taking part in personal fundraising challenges to support the partnership further.

Meerkat your skills

We have a lot of experts across our teams, and we want to share our skills by supporting charities with things like marketing, data, risk & compliance and PR.

Our aim is to help charities grow stronger and operate more efficiently by sharing our skills in the areas where they need it the most. This is because we’re used to collaborating and working together and so it seems right to use our expertise to help others too.

Charities we’ve already worked with include The Kite Trust, London Autism Group Charity, ELOP (East London Out Project), The Switch and MyBnk.

Playing my part

We know how important it is for everyone to personalise their own impact too and support the causes closest to their hearts.

Everyone gets three days a year to use for CSR, wellbeing or development and we match fund any fundraising up to £1,000 per financial year, we’ll even give you an extra £100 if it’s linked to a financial education charity.

And all colleagues can also enroll in payroll giving where they can chose a charity to donate to each month – we’ll match up to £50pm.

The CSR volunteering opportunities CtM offer to staff is invaluable. I’ve never been with a company that support local charities to such an extent, let alone encourage staff to take part in that support up to 3 days a year.

Colleagues have used their volunteering days so far this year.

I worked out that if I gave up one night out a month I could donate that money instead, and by doing payroll giving, it gets taken straight from my gross pay (so reducing temptation to spend) and removing the need for the charity to have to do time wasting admin to claim the tax back, so it seemed a win win situation!

At Compare the Market, there is so much support around charities and fundraising. The company supports colleagues by match funding up to £1,000 and this has helped me on so many occasions. The CtM community, itself, is very diverse and I am surrounded by many amazing people who actively raise money for charity.

I regularly raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, a charity close to my heart. The extra donations that they get through match funding from CtM makes a huge difference for charities like this, and it means that the charity can continue supporting Firefighters, whilst they support local communities.

Our team recently spent a morning at the Peterborough Foodbank helping to source urgent items and then sort the food supplies for families in need. Thank you to our CSR team for their generous donation and the donations from colleagues, all of which equated to 325 meals for families in the area. We loved using our CSR day to help this very important charity and as CtM gives everyone 3 CSR days per year, we were able to step up and help when the Foodbank needed us the most.

CtM sponsor colleagues as online reading volunteers using Chapter One's digital platform. I love books and the pleasure reading gives and ChapterOne volunteering is such a positive experience; hearing the pleasure the children get from a regular one to one session, just for them, and seeing the progress they make so quickly. A small effort for big reward.

We're given up to 3 CSR days and match funding up to £1000.  For me personally, this enables me to support my community - which I'm passionate about.  So far this year, I've used one of my days to support the #Bighelpout day, where I volunteered to serve food and sell raffle tickets at a street party - raising funds for Parkinson's and CtM generously donated to this too.
