Giving More

Giving More Together

Edrington's employees in Scotland can sign up to be Robertson Trust Ambassadors, the team that advises and encourages their colleagues about the opportunities under the Giving More scheme. Through the Giving More Together scheme, The Robertson Trust and Edrington both match the charitable fundraising of employees; £1 raised for charity by an Edrington employee becomes £3 after additional contributions from The Robertson Trust and Edrington. 

In 2016/17 the total raised and donated by Edrington employees to good causes in Scotland was £540,000.

 

Giving More to Education

Through Brugal, Edrington funds The Brugal Foundation, which supports development and reduces poverty in the Dominican Republic. The Foundation's chief focus is on making quality education available to talented students who face financial hardship. The Brugal Foundation has now supported almost 300 scholars in the last 11 years.

Giving More International

Within Edrington's international business, we have developed our Giving More programme to bring the spirit of the Robertson sisters' generosity to life for employees around the world.

Edrington's International Giving More fund donates 1% of pre-tax earnings to charities chosen by employees outside Scotland.

In 2016/17 donations were valued at £1.57 million.

Since Giving More International was launched in 2012/13, international charities have received donations valued at over £5.5 million.
