Supporting charitable causes
The Kier Foundation is an independently registered charity that supports both Kier’s charity partner and other charitable causes close to the hearts of our employees and the communities in which we operate. The Kier Foundation began operating in 2012, with the purpose of offering financial support to charitable bodies throughout the UK. Since its formation, the Kier Foundation has donated more than £1.5 m to charitable causes, thanks to the continued support of our employees.
At Kier, we facilitate employee engagement and involvement with charitable partners, providing support through the Kier Foundation. Part of this is our Payroll Giving, a scheme that allows employees make donations via a direct deduction from their gross pay.Find out more about The Kier Foundation >
Charity partnership - The British Heart Foundation
Every two years we nominate a new Charity Partner chosen by our employees, in 2018 we have partnered with The British Heart Foundation.
The British Heart Foundation funds research into lifesaving cures and treatments for all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them, to help people and families live longer, better lives.
During our partnership we aim to raise £250,000 to fund lifesaving research, recruit and train 1,500 Kier Lifesavers to learn and deliver CPR and engage Kier people with the partnership to beat heartbreak forever.
