Charitable donations

Charitable giving policy

Smiths seeks to contribute to the communities in which we live and work in a number of ways. In addition to providing employment opportunities and minimising our environmental impact, we support a variety of local community initiatives.

Our charitable donations and community initiatives facilitate projects around the globe that, like our products, seek to help make the world a safer, healthier and more productive place.

Smiths Group and its operating divisions – John Crane, Smiths Medical, Smiths Detection, Smiths Interconnect and Flex-Tek - support organisations that promote the advancement or wellbeing of people through a range of health and education initiatives.

Each division is responsible for agreeing and administering its own charitable donations budget. To apply to these funds, please contact the appropriate division directly using the links below.

In addition to this, Smiths Group has a limited corporate budget for charitable donations that make a positive impact in the community in and around the area near to its head office in London or to the sectors we operate in.

We support

The Smiths Group corporate charitable donations fund focuses on small charitable organisations that:

  • work in the community close to our Head Office (London, UK) and/or
  • have connections to the industries in which we operate.

Grant sizes

Donations from the corporate fund are generally less than £1,000.

We fund

We consider applications from charities and non-profit organisations that demonstrate how a donation will enhance the well-being of people through improved education, health/welfare or environment.

Your organisation does not need to be a registered charity, but it should be charitable.

Organisations must be working in:

  • health
  • education and wellbeing
  • environment
  • based or working in or around London

Some examples of organisations that could be funded by Smiths Group include hospices, school projects, community initiatives, homeless charities and hospitals.

We do not fund

  • individuals who are looking for sponsorship for fundraising activities
  • initiatives that involve people participating in dangerous activities such as bungee jumping or parachuting
  • political organisations and campaigns
  • any initiative that is outside of the criteria outlined above

How to apply

If your organisation and proposed funding initiative fit our criteria please complete our application form and email it to cr[AT]smiths[DOT]com

We are unable to respond to applications sent via post.

Timescales

We review applications twice a year.
