We engage in structural partnerships with NGOs (including Artsen Zonder Grenzen/Médecins Sans Frontières, Fair Trade Belgium, I-Arks, Josefa Foundation, Kampani, Kom op tegen Kanker, Médecins du Monde/Doktors van de Wereld, Netwerk Ondernemen, Ondernemers voor Ondernemers/Entrepreneurs pour Entrepreneurs) to which we provide our professional services on a pro bono basis.
By offering what we do best to selected non-profit organisations and social purpose businesses at no charge, we deliver the greatest value and have the largest societal impact. Supporting these enterprises with legal and fiscal challenges, providing management advisory services and helping them set-up a proper structure with the appropriate legal status allows them to focus on what they do best, which ultimately benefits the weakest of our society.
PwC is convinced that through hands-on activities we can actually make a difference in the lives of many people. We regularly send volunteers to the three homework assistance programmes we support.
Our annual PwC Community Days see staff, along with their family and friends, rolling up their sleeves to help with one of more than a dozen projects across the country: accompanying disabled children during an excursion, cleaning up a farm for abandoned horses, painting the premises of a home for children that were placed into custody, etc.
We also support ‘Kom op tegen Kanker’ by taking part in its annual cycling event, and make collections for toys, books and clothes to be distributed during the Christmas season among those that need them most.
Each year, we evaluate requests from employees to contribute financially to the social projects they care for.
"Via our Corporate Responsibility (CR) programme, we deploy a wide variety of initiatives. As well as making a contribution to the local community, these activities offer our people the opportunity to enrich their skillset and experience outside the workplace."
