Quilter Foundation donates £100,000 to the National Emergencies Trust (NET) COVID-19 appeal

20 March 2020

Quilter Foundation is donating £100,000 to the national appeal launched yesterday by HRH Prince William in response to the Coronavirus crisis. This is the first such NET appeal since it launched in 2019.

The appeal will seek to raise substantial funds which will then be distributed by the NET through an established link through to Community Foundations nationally. This will ensure the funds reach local charities delivering urgent support to the elderly and other vulnerable groups that are and will be dramatically impacted through the crisis.

Quilter is making the donation from its Foundation to the NET COVID-19 appeal. Quilter is seeking to raise awareness of the NET appeal more widely and encourage the industry to donate to the appeal . It will also match funds raised by employees donating to the appeal.

Paul Feeney, CEO of Quilter said:

“We  must show the best side of humanity at time like this. The virus will impact friends, family, colleagues and communities and so it’s vital that we come together and support the National Emergency Trust to ensure support gets to those people who need it, when they need it.  

“With our donation by the Quilter Foundation and support of our colleagues I hope we can quickly support those in need.”
