Support Your Charity Drive
APS is launching a scheme called “Support Your Charity”. The scheme is aimed at helping charities to support their charitable works across communities in The Gambia. This scheme is open to any charity both in the diaspora or Gambia that do their charitable interventions in The Gambia.
This year, we want to change the way we donate to charities and our strategy is to separate our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) from our Sponsorship activities. This scheme is purely a CSR drive and we would like our Customers and the Public in general to help us choose 10 charities they think deserves support by voting for their charity of choice. The charities that receive the highest votes in each category will each get D10,000.00 and their runner ups will each receive D5,000.00 donation from APS. We believe that this will be a fairer way to donate to charities that are important to our valued customers and ensure that every charity gets equal opportunity.
APS is a company that takes pride in our Corporate Social Responsibility in giving back to the community and passionate about supporting charities. But it is equally difficult if not at times impossible to support every request we receive.
The scheme will provide an opportunity to our Customers and the Public to vote for charities of their choice even though all charities are doing amazing work in their own intervention areas and winners will be selected purely by votes at the same time creating a level playing field for all.
Ten (10) charities will benefit from this scheme and nominations are NOW OPEN and runs until 14thth February 2020.
Voting Period: 21st February – 20th March 2020
Winners will be announced: 27th March 2020.
If you are a Charity Association or Group and engage in charitable works in The Gambia and would like to be part of this scheme, please send us a brief description about your charity and what it does in not more than 100 words to: firstname.lastname@example.org. (You can choose to add your charity website or Facebook page in the description)
We would also like you to tell us which of the following categories best describe your Charity as your charity can only be under one category.
- Poverty Relief
- Community Association
