The Axis Foundation celebrates a Decade of Donating in 2019.

In the ten years since the Foundation was born, it has supported 150 causes and donated over £1.25 million. Every small impactful and local cause the Foundation has supported has made a real difference to an individual, a group, or an element of society.

Axis people set the first stone

Ten years ago, the people who work at Axis set the very first Foundation stone with their spirit of giving. Says CEO John Hayes:


I set the Foundation up originally to try and formalise and capture all the elements of “giving” that we were already doing right across the company. To say it has exceeded my wildest expectations would be a massive understatement.

Special Seasonal promotions

Special promotions like Big Christmas Giveaway and Generous January invite Axis people to put forward local causes very close to their hearts as suggestions to receive donations, and Axis’ clients have also supported the Foundation at our annual fundraising Celebrity Golf Day and Charity Ball.

All year, every year

Through our corporate donation, money raised at our charity golf days and charity balls, as well as the adventurous and unceasing initiatives of the people who work at Axis, the Foundation has provided help in the following areas:

  • In hospitals and hospices, our donations have provided vital equipment and improved facilities for those with life-limiting illnesses as well as funding medical research into children’s illnesses too.
  • The Foundation has supported anti-knife crime and youth safety initiatives and reached out the hand of friendship to those who are isolated through practical donations in the form of adapted minibuses and cars.
  • The Axis Foundation has helped the vulnerable feel safe and enabled them to meet, socialise and engage in activities as well as receive appropriate care.
