Charitable initiatives

We encourage our employees to participate in community and charitable activities, including fundraising. In the UK, we have chosen Centrepoint as our national charity for 2010 and 2011. The charity provides emergency accommodation, support, information and training for homeless young people in London. Centrepoint also has a UK network of partnering charities so that we can support the same cause across the country. We actively support housing and homelessness charities and we are also a patron of CRASH, which is the construction and property industries’ charity for the homeless.

We organised a Taylor Wimpey Fun Day to start off the fundraising for Centrepoint, including a five‑a-side football tournament, ‘It’s A Knock Out’ competition, charity auction and raffle. The day raised £10,500 for the charity. All of our UK offices participated in the event and Centrepoint also provided a football team.

In North America, Taylor Morrison continued to support the Special Olympics and we are developing a major fundraising programme for 2011. We also have a Volunteer of the Quarter award in North America, where we recognise the charitable work of our employees and we challenge our employees to enter athletic competitions for charity.
