Charity & Corporate Social Responsibility
As you might expect from an organisation that counts community and progressiveness among its core values, we do all we can to share in our success by supporting good causes and initiatives.
We actively encourage our team to get involved in these activities, to organise their own events and take time to give back to charitable causes. Through our internal CSR group, we raise awareness & funds for those who need it most, whilst having fun along the way.
From coffee mornings & cake sales, growing moustaches & dressing silly, we simply #doitforothers. Goodwille give each of their employees one day’s leave each year to help their chosen charity, and Goodwille matches all donations raised by the team through their CSR initiatives.
To show we appreciate the team’s donations, Goodwille match the money they donate.
We give the team one extra day’s leave each year to support charities close to their hearts.
For A Good Cause
This is how much we have raised for charity so far! And counting…
Our Chosen Charity
The MicroLoan Foundation is a UK-based microfinance charity that provides small loans, business training and ongoing guidance to groups of women in sub-Saharan Africa. In doing so, it helps these women to build businesses capable of sustained success, allowing them to work their way out of poverty and providing much needed food and education for their families.
Our group of 16 women – the Tapiwa (meaning ‘we have been given’ in Ngoni) – supports a total of 96 children by selling maize and conducting various other trading enterprises, all funded by their loans.
MicroLoan gives hopes, not handouts and provides the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills needed to work their way out of poverty, and support to become self-sufficient. We think this is a great cause and are proud to support MicroLoan Foundation in their work with helping women create better lives for themselves and their community.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
At Goodwille, we strongly believe that businesses today must put social, environmental and economic sustainability at the core of everything they do to stay relevant and meet the expectations of their stakeholders, including clients, staff and their local and wider community.
We are committed in incorporate sustainability into every aspect of our operations , and we have therefore set out a CSR Policy to guide and govern how we at Goodwille operate.
Our CSR Policy is divided into four areas; Environment, Business Ethics, Community Involvement, and Business Relationships. These all make up the foundation as to how we at Goodwille collectively conduct business in a sustainable and responsible manner. You can read our CSR policy here.
