In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, FTI Consulting’s in-person holiday social gatherings were put on hold in many cities as we put the health and well-being of our people and their loved ones first. In an effort to positively impact the world this holiday season, FTI Consulting employees decided to donate the funds that we typically allocate towards firm holiday parties to support global charitable organizations fighting hunger.
FTI Consulting made charitable donations to three global organizations dedicated to fighting hunger:
- Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger. For more than 40 years, the organization has been on the front lines of the fight against hunger. Across 46 countries, Action Against Hunger’s 8,500 staff work in the world’s most vulnerable communities. The organization’s life-changing programs reached 17 million people in 2019.
- The Global FoodBanking Network (“GFN”) is an international nonprofit organization that nourishes the world’s hungry by uniting and advancing food banks in more than 40 countries. GFN focuses on combating hunger and preventing food waste by providing expertise, directing resources, sharing knowledge and developing connections that increase efficiency, ensure food safety and reach more people facing hunger. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, food banks in the network have served more than 27 million people facing hunger.
- The Hunger Project works to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, women-centered, people-led strategies. The Hunger Project is active in 23 countries and its programs partner with 16.5 million empowered individuals who are leading the way to a healthy and hunger-free world.
FTI Consulting donated USD$500,000 to charities around the world during the holiday season.
“We recognized the unprecedented number of people impacted by the pandemic who were struggling to buy food for themselves or their families as the holidays approached. The holiday campaign was an obvious opportunity for FTI Consulting. In a year where our holiday celebrations were not possible, each employee could instead provide meals for several needy families. This was one small way to give a bit of relief to thousands of less-fortunate people around the world.”Paul Linton
