About Zurich Community Trust #LoveZCT


About us

Through an inspiring range of grant-making, fundraising and volunteering programmes, Zurich Community Trust (ZCT) has one aim – helping to support a more inclusive and resilient society. This is mainly in the UK with a modest annual budget to support UK charities working overseas.

It’s something we’ve been doing since 1973 which makes us one of the longest-established corporate trusts in the UK! In that time we've awarded grants and brokered business volunteer time from Zurich Insurance UK valued at over £90 million to deserving causes.

Through our work with a huge variety of community partners and supported by the funds, time and talent donated by Zurich Insurance UK and its employees, we address a raft of social issues to bring about positive change to those facing tough times. Every year we award around £1.75 million in grants and help to improve the quality of life for more than 130,000 disadvantaged people.

Whilst we are a registered independent charity (no 266983), we are also an integral part of Zurich’s broader and long-held commitment to corporate responsibility.

Welcome to the world of ZCT - your world and ours! Let’s help to make it a better one.
