Meet new corporate member, Mishcon de Reya
TFN is pleased to welcome Mishcon de Reya as our newest corporate member! We spoke to them to find out how they'll be getting involved with TFN through their corporate membership:
What made Mishcon de Reya want to join TFN as a corporate member? The whole concept of The Funding Network really appealed to us, particularly as membership gives our staff the opportunity to support and develop relationships with innovative, young charities.
Can you tell us about Mishcon de Reya's current charitable activities? We have partnerships in place with a number of charities including Place2Be, Teach First, SportInspired and Young Enterprise. We encourage staff to become trustees, school governers or academy ambassadors and many of our departments run their own volunteering and fundraising activities. Fee Earners are encouraged to spend 50 hours per year and Support Staff 25 hours per year on charitable activities, either through pro bono or other volunteering opportunities.
What are you most looking forward to about your membership with TFN? We're excited to be able to broaden our network by funding more charities and encouraging staff to develop their philanthropic activities in an environment like TFN.
