Giving

We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients,
our people, and wider society, every day.

Our vision is to use economics for the good of humanity. We strive to make a difference in the world, through our work, as well as our charitable donations and activities.

We support and encourage our people to give back to causes close to their hearts by matching any donations and offering 4 days of paid volunteering leave per year. We empower them to follow their passions and apply their expertise and skills to charitable causes. From community based volunteering to collaborations with international NGOs – our people have contributed in uniquely diverse ways.

We have a long way to go to achieve our vision, but we are on the right path. 

FIECON audit GiveWell’s #1 charity

One of our talented Associates, Lydia Walder, completed an independent audit of GiveWell’s recommendation that the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is their #1 ranked charity in terms of its clinical evidence, cost-effectiveness and transparency.

As part of the audit, Lydia developed an independent cost-effectiveness analysis, comparing long-lasting insecticide bed nets with untreated bed nets, and no nets in suburban populations. The results confirmed GiveWell’s conclusions, that the use of long-lasting insecticide bed nets in high risk malarias areas is an extremely cost-effective way to donate money.

GiveWell is a non-profit organisation dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities through in-depth analyses. FIECON appreciate GiveWell’s cause and hope our audit will provide assurances that the AMF is a cost-effective charity to invest in.

Annual profit donations

In 2017, FIECON donated £30,990 to the Against Malaria Foundation. The donation was allocated to a specific distribution in Ghana, and will fund 21,252 long-lasting insecticidal nets that will protect an estimated 38,254 people. By FIECON’s calculations, this donation will save up to 20 lives.

The Against Malaria Foundation is a charity that provides funding to purchase and distribute long-lasting insecticide-treated mosquito nets to populations at high risk of malaria; 40% of the world’s population lives in areas affected by malaria and something as simple as a mosquito net can go a long way.

Fun day for Charity

On a grey, rainy day in St. Albans, the FIECON team geared up for the local Pancake race for charity. All proceedings from the race went to Home start – a local family support charity which helps families give their children the best start in life.

The FIECON team won third place (albeit out of four!) battling the rain, wind and flying pancakes but came away feeling proud and satisfied, having helped a brilliant local charity.
