Who we are extends beyond our office walls and business activities, and we aim to be a supportive part of the local communities where we operate. Our vision for our community support is centred around giving both our time and money to local community causes.
In 2020 we launched our core global theme, supporting our ‘Future Generations’. Meaning our time, expertise and donations go towards supporting the young people in our communities to thrive. Whether that is through supporting education, social mobility, or health charities. Local committees in our key locations drive this engagement across Paysafe.
All Paysafe employees are encouraged to use their one-day volunteering allowance to support a cause they care about in their communities. This is something that is important to our culture and is actively encouraged across Paysafe. At Paysafe, volunteer led Community teams across our offices drive local momentum and push forward on our Community initiatives.
Most recently we decided to support local community-based charities as part of our humanitarian response to COVID19 in many of our key locations. A list of those charities can be seen below:
Some of our highlights over the past year:
Paysafe employees across the world took part in a step challenge as part of our annual Wellness week. To encourage as many steps as possible, Paysafe made a donation to Plan International for every step taken by employees.
In London, Paysafe has been working with the charity UpReach for a number of years through providing 3-month summer internships in addition to opportunities for the beneficiaries’ of the charity to take part in skills based workshops at our London office. This is a long-standing partnership through which we continue to see interns placed into our London office.
Additionally, Paysafe has donated to Street League, and took part in its football tournament that raises funds and awareness for unemployed youths, helping them move in to work or undertake further training. Numerous volunteers have also taken part in workshops and volunteering opportunities with charities ELBA and Richard House Children’s Hospice.
