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.

In 2016 and 2018 IBM contributed £2,100 to the important work of Action for Happiness to help people take action for a happier and more caring world by improving mental wellbeing in local communities and schools across the UK.
