MAYKOR Discusses the Results of #GivingTuesday at Charity Club Meeting
MAYKOR, a leading Russian provider of IT and business process outsourcing services, attended a regular meeting of the Charity Club on the opportunities and prospects for companies' participation in the international initiative #GivingTuesday. The coordinator of the charitable campaign in Russia, the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), was the organizer of the event, which was held on April 20 in Moscow.

At the meeting, MAYKOR shared its experience in participating in the #GivingTuesday charitable initiative. Having joined the project in 2016, the company has held three charitable events that attracted the attention not just of employees, but of a wider audience. Together with the Deti Nashi (Our Children) foundation, MAYKOR organized fundraising for lessons on IT careers in orphanages in the Smolensk region and doubled the amount collected. A campaign to collect items for the "Good Things" project was also held in the company's office. Money raised from the sale of these items was sent to help children with serious illnesses from the Butovo Rehabilitation Center for the Disabled. In addition, MAYKOR donated IT equipment and accessories available in stock to the needy.

Event participants also reviewed other successful cases implemented as part of #GivingTuesday, answered frequently asked questions about the specifics of conducting the campaign, and presented a future plan for development of the initiative in Russia.
