Over the last few weeks we’ve been sharing some local cause films with you featuring our colleagues, members and their local causes.
They’re part of our campaign to encourage more members and colleagues to log into their membership account and choose the local cause that matters most to them in their community.
For a while now we’ve noticed that lots of colleagues aren’t going online and doing this.
In fact, since we launched our Local Community Fund in September 2016, only 16,000 colleagues have chosen their cause.
We’d love to know why you’re not choosing. It could be for a variety of reasons.
- Maybe you’ve forgotten your membership login details? All you need to do is press the ‘forgotten password’ on the membership login page. Or if you’ve forgotten the email you registered with please call 0800 023 4708
- Maybe some of you would like your 1% to be shared between all three – we have tested this on the membership website but only a small number of members wanted this functionality added. It’s something we’ll look at again in future
Remember that if you don’t want to choose the three local causes in your area, you have the choice of others 15 miles from where you live.
Whatever the reason, please tell us in the comments below.
We’re already creating stronger communities
We’ve helped more than 12,000 local causes since our Local Community Fund started.
Not only have our members given their 1%, our colleagues and Member Pioneers have built close relationships with our causes.
These relationships have helped us understand more about the challenges they face.
Last week we published a report on what we found out. It’ll help us improve how we support our local causes in future.
