At MAXIMUS UK, we’ve always had a strong sense of giving back to the communities we serve. In 2015, MAXIMUS Foundation UK was established as a not-for-profit enterprise to support community groups and charities that share our aims and values.
Thanks to the generous contributions of MAXIMUS Foundation, we are able to make significant investments to great causes across the UK. We do this by providing one-off grants to not-for-profit organisations that share our commitment to helping disadvantaged groups. In particular, those contributing to personal growth and self-sufficiency in:
- Health Outcomes
- Improved Employment Opportunities
- Community Development
We donated £57,500 in grant funding to 23 different charities in 2015. To find our more about those beneficiaries and how they are spending the grant funding, take a look at the 2015 annual report.
