Grant Thornton: Donation to UNICEF tops US$250,000
January 5, 2013

Grant Thornton donated US$60,000 to UNICEF, the leading children’s organisation, as part of its ongoing partnership through the International Business Report (IBR). This takes the total donation made over the past six years to over US$250,000.
The IBR surveys 12,000 businesses in 44 economies every year, providing insight into the economic and commercial issues affecting both listed and privately-held businesses.
Ali Jeffery, Corporate Relations Manager at UNICEF UK said: “We are most grateful that Grant Thornton has chosen to continue its association with us through IBR. UNICEF’s work for children depends entirely on voluntary donations as we do not receive any funding from the UN budget. The annual donation is incredibly valuable in our mission to ensure every child has the best start in life.
“For example, the total donation over our association with the Grant Thornton IBR project is equivalent to the provision of 52 mobile school kits including Early Childhood Development materials benefiting 1560-5200 mobile school students in Kenya. These kits include learning materials, portable blackboards and tents, lamps, and jerry cans for storing water.”
