Less than one week until we take part in The Big Give Live, powered by the brilliant Philanthropitch at #SageSummit

@sagefoundation have given three charities the opportunity to pitch for support and up to £21,000! Supported by Acuity, Datel and Pinnacle three of the leading Sage business partners in the UK.

Working Chance is an award-winning charity and the UK’s only specialist recruitment consultancy for women with criminal convictions and young women care leavers. They’ve supported over 900 women and young women care leavers into sustainable employment. @WorkingChance

Hire a Hero provides support to service leavers and veterans as they transition to civilian life. They do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes to support those who have served move into long-term, meaningful employment. @Hireaherouk    

Pursuing Independent Paths supports young adults with learning disabilities in London to achieve their potential, live more independently, be seen, accepted and valued in society. @PIPLDN

At Sage Summit in Chicago (July 2016), Steve Hare, Sage CFO set a $1million fundraising target so that Sage colleagues, Customers and Partners could all work together to do more for our communities. 

I had the opportunity to sit with my CEO and CMO who were discussing the project and why Acuity decided to be involved. 

Lee explained "Acuity have a rich heritage in business with NFP’s so it was a no brainer for us to rush to support the ‘Big give’" Lee continued "having been a regular visitor to Sage Summit for the past decade in North America and South Africa conferences, having Summit in London is definitely a great step forward, supporting UK business and the partner community alike" 

Marcus explained our relationship with Sage Foundation "We’ve been engaged with Sage Foundation since its inception and as an intrinsic part of Sage it’s just the right thing to do" Marcus explained a little more about the foundation offering " Sage offer the Charity sector a great financial incentive to adopt the three solutions in the global portfolio, whether SageOne SageLive or SageX3, and as a partner who provides services and support across these solutions we really do feel part of the foundation project"
