John Lewis Partnership launches new approach to charitable giving

John Lewis Partnership has launched a new charitable giving scheme, Community Matters, which will see the High Wycombe retailer split a donation of £3,000 between three community groups every three months.

Charities will receive support as either John Lewis products, volunteering time from Partners (employees), or as financial support.

Customers at John Lewis Partnership will be directly involved in deciding how much each good cause receives, by using a token to vote for the organisation they would like to support. Each charity will receive a share of £3,000 according to the proportion of the vote they receive from customers.   Customers in the department store’s restaurant will be given one token per transaction, and will be able to follow how much of the vote each organisation receives over the three months.

The first organisations from the High Wycombe Store to receive support will be Woodrow High House, Riding for the disabled association and Kids in sport.

Organisations wanting to take part in Community Matters should visit John Lewis Partnership to pick up a nomination form.
