IBM strives to support and enable the not for profit sector in a sustainable, meaningful and impactful way. We closely tie our community programmes (supporting charities and social enterprises) to our technologies, business skills and expertise. We focus on helping not for profit organisations improve their skills/capacity and in turn help improve their operations going forward. Unfortunately, we do not make direct financial contributions/donations to not for profit organisations. However, IBM volunteers who regularly volunteer with a not for profit organisations can apply on the organisations behalf.

Our Mindfulness Practice Group supports the UK Action for Happiness Charity work on LIVING LIFE MINDFULLY as Action Key 4 of their 10 Keys To Happier Living. With IBM Community Grants our support includes donations of £2,100 with a current £1,560 application awaiting approval, our Key 4 Weekly Mindfulness Practice Group Meetings along with Newsletters.
