Charity of the Month
Support our employees chosen charity of the month
It’s always difficult to choose just one corporate charity. There's so many worth causes and so many individual preferences based on personal experiences. So, in order to support as many charities throughout the year as possible, the Nixon Hire Foundation, we have opened up the vote to our employees.
Employees can nominate the registered charity they think should be awarded a donation from our fund. Once all nominations are in, we will cast a vote to all employees and the 12 charities with the most votes will be awarded a payment each. Payments will be made to a different charity each month throughout the year.
Support projects in our local communities
We regularly receive requests for our equipment to be donated free of charge to charity events and community projects where the budget is tight. This is always a difficult question to respond to as saying 'no' indicates Nixon Hire don’t wish to support your good efforts – we do! Unfortunately, we just simply can’t sustain the supply of all the free equipment we get asked for. So that we can demonstrate our commitment to supporting projects in our local communities we are pleased to offer a discretionary discount off hires to registered charities. This discretionary discount is not available to projects or events where there will be a commercial gain. To ensure our fund goes as far as possible and truly supports the projects it needs to, discount is solely available to support events where costs would prohibit a local charitable fundraising event taking place. Please complete the form to submit your request.
We are only able to consider requests made using the form below, emails will not be accepted.
Please see the bottom of the page for the fund conditions.
