What is the Baxi Heating Charitable Trust?

The Baxi Heating Charitable Trust has been established so that we can support charitable activities and organisations in the communities in which we live and work in the UK and Ireland.

What is it for?

We aim to support three areas:

  • The relief of sickness and the preservation of health
  • The advancement of learning and education
  • The maintenance and improvement of accommodation facilities for the homeless and the prevention and relief of poverty

How do we do it?

  • Sponsorship: raising money by taking part in sponsored activities and organising fundraising events, such as charity fun days.
  • Fundraising and grants: our colleagues organise events to raise money for the Trust, for example through bake sales, dress down days, customer golf days, etc. Monies raised goes into the Trust coffers. Colleagues and local organisations can ask for grants to support charitable causes close to their hearts through the Trust. Applications up to £1,000 will be considered by the Trustees.
  • Products: we can support charities and organisations that meet our criteria by providing free of charge heating and hot water products to help support those people who need it most.
  • Volunteering: colleagues can provide voluntary support for organisations in our local communities.
The Baxi Heating Charitable Trust is overseen by a board of Trustees who work for Baxi Heating.
