SGE Loans / Leeds Community Foundation SGE Loans as part of the SGE Group became involved with Leeds Community Foundation in 2012 as part of the 100 Club. SGE Loans Chief Executive Sally Hill initiated the involvement as a way for her increasing team to be able to give something back to the community of which they are a part of. The growing SGE Loans workforce are based in Leeds city centre and wanted specifically to support a charity which would give something back to their local community. SGE Loans were particularly impressed with the dual facts that Leeds Community Foundation support a wide variety of community groups and organisations and that SGE Loans are able to choose where their money goes and see the effect of that money in action. In July 2013, SGE Loans and the SGE Group became the first ever corporate supporters of the charity to set up a new Payday Giving scheme. This scheme operates as a tax relief on donations, meaning the charity benefit more from each donation received. Any donations employees of SGE Loans wish to make to the Leeds Community Foundation are deducted from their salary before tax. In effect, this means that a £10 donation costs the employee of SGE Loans just £8. On top of this, SGE Loans as a business are operating a full price match donation scheme to double the amount that the charity will receive. At present, over 90% of SGE Loans employees have voluntarily signed up for the Payday Giving scheme. SGE Loans are aiming to raise a minimum of £10,000 for Leeds Community Foundation by the end of 2013. The Community Foundation movement has been in existence for almost a full century, beginning in 1914 in Ohio, with the maxim local help for local needs’. The first UK-based Community Foundation was formed in 1975. Today, there are 55 Foundations in the UK and 1,440 globally across more than 50 countries. By choosing to give locally individuals, companies, charitable trusts and government agencies are able to really see how and where their money goes and the differences it can make to the lives of those around them. SGE Loans are now urging other companies in the Leeds area to follow their example and make an even bigger difference to the local community.
