We are committed to our global community

Computershare has a long history of community involvement and is committed to community engagement through volunteer and fundraising programs based in areas local to our business. We support and encourage our staff to participate in community activities by providing everyone with a volunteer day each year.

 

Change A Life - Our global community giving program

​Globally, Computershare is dedicated to supporting initiatives which help alleviate poverty through our community giving program, Change A Life. Below are some figures on our impact so far:

Change A Life has a focus on sustainability by investing 80% of donations in global projects which provide long-term solutions to the communities our employees vote to work with. The remaining 20% of donations go to local projects via established charities, chosen by our local employees. Computershare matches all employee payroll donations.
