CG Gives is the charitable arm of our organization which strives to assist our wider community. Our mission is to protect the future of global communities through empowered giving.
We do this by supporting a variety of global and regional causes which alleviate poverty and provide disaster relief for communities around the world. Our focus is to empower individuals to improve their immediate circumstances as well as their communities.
Whether we’re protecting a holiday maker in New York with insurance or we’re protecting a community’s livelihood in the Philippines through microfinance loans, protection is at the core of who we are.
We passionately believe that communities and individuals prosper when they’re able to protect their futures. This is a mission that we aspire to as a global insurance technology company, but equally it’s a mission we’re building for global communities.
CG Gives enables our team members to become philanthropists in their own right and work with organizations across the globe to provide funding and skills that help alleviate poverty. We support a wide range of social impact and philanthropic initiatives including microloans to entrepreneurs experiencing poverty, disaster relief, skills training and education programs.
Through CG Gives, we’ve seen the network effects that our charitable efforts can make and we’re determined to make CG Gives a gift that keeps on giving.
Together we've provided
Our donations have supported 15 different initiatives from bushfire relief in Australia, funding farm supplies in the Philippines, aiding education programs for women globally, to supporting families create market stalls in Cambodia.
$25,000 raised for the Australian Bushfire relief effort
During the summer of 2019/2020, Australia experienced the worst bushfires/wildfires in recent history. The fires destroyed billions of animals lives, millions of hectares of bushland, thousands of communities, hundreds of family homes and took the lives of heroic individuals. United in an effort to support those in need, CG Gives raised $25,000 for the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund, which provided emergency assistance, shelter and medical assistance to those in need.
Helping Sokhun save for a better future for her children in Cambodia
Sokhun is a working mother of three who, like all parents, wanted an education for her children. Being the breadwinner of the family, the income from her market selling pantry goods, would not fulfil this dream. CG Gives funded a microfinance loan to help Sokhun expand her business to sell juices and add additional inventory to the stall. This loan helped her business to thrive and Sokhun has been able to save for her children’s future.
Helping Vilma from heartbreak to business leadership
When Vilma was left widowed, she became the sole carer and breadwinner to her family of six children. During this traumatic time her furniture business became a lesser priority, impacting her ability to financially support her family. Through a loan funded by CG Gives, she was able to receive financial and business skills training which enabled her to expand her business by hiring additional employees. Vilma has been able to grow her business and support her children, and their aspirations to attend college.
How it works
We make our money by selling insurance and technology globally to both businesses and consumers alike.
CG GIVES - EMPLOYEE PROGRAM
CG Gives has partnered with Good Return, a global provider of microfinance that builds pathways out of poverty for tens of thousands of people globally. Together we empower people to grow their incomes and break the poverty cycle for good, by making sure they can access sustainable financing.
Our team contributes their bonuses as capital for entrepreneurs like Sokhun, who is a working mother of three. She needed to expand her market stall so she could provide her children with a stable education. Through our employee program we’ve helped her and many others support their families and communities through microfinancing and our employees have become philanthropists along the way.
