Supporting our communities

In 2020, we saw the world in turmoil due to a global pandemic and persistent, systemic racial injustice and inequity. As a company, we were steadfast in our Purpose to help people get more out of life.

We believe that doing what is right for our clients, employees and communities contributes to a healthier and more equitable society. Through investing in organizations, communities and individuals, we make a positive impact toward the causes that matter most to our stakeholders.

Throughout 2020 we continued to support existing community partnerships, including our financial literacy partners, a pillar of our corporate responsibility program which helps us to extend our expertise beyond our client base. Additionally, we supported new partners who provided critical support around the COVID-19 pandemic and organizations that advanced racial justice.

Invesco Cares

Invesco Cares is Invesco’s philanthropy and volunteering organization, through which our employees raise funds, volunteer and share skills with nonprofits, startups and other corporations around the world to give back to the communities we serve.

Invesco Cares’ corporate giving and employee volunteerism programming is managed through a unique grassroots structure. Each office is given its own charitable giving budget through Invesco Cares, and we empower our employees with the authority to collaboratively select which organizations they would like to see Invesco support in their local communities. This means that the organizations with which we work are a direct reflection of the interest of our employees and where they want to make an impact. We are proud to celebrate our employees’ choice of nonprofits through Invesco Cares and find that this approach encourages engagement both with our employees and communities around the globe.

Invesco Cares programming focuses on:

Improving financial education globally

Supporting healthy living and promoting wellness for all

Protecting the environment and promoting environmental sustainability

Supporting and collaborating with our local civic and community organizations to improve life in our cities

Championing diversity and inclusion in our industry and our company

The Invesco culture encourages employees to make an impact in communities through various volunteer opportunities. However, because volunteering was not possible at scale in 2020, Invesco focused on helping local communities by increasing charitable giving. For example, Invesco launched a first-ever global, company-matching gift program for organizations specifically targeting COVID-19 relief and/or racial injustice. Invesco matched employee donations up to $250,000.

Invesco Cares: Global reach,
local impact

Around the world, our employees give back through Invesco Cares to the charities and causes that matter most to them. In 2020, our U.K. employees voted to select the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) as their Charity of the Year. CALM is a leader in suicide prevention and mental health support, and their selection showcases our employees’ support to this important cause. As charity of the year, CALM received 223,500 pounds sterling (US$310,441) total from Invesco—raised by employees via a virtual triathlon, a salary sacrifice, Invesco Christmas donation and a grant from the Invesco Cares Foundation.
