Established in 2009, the Nomura Charitable Trust has been supporting disadvantaged young people in the local communities in which it operates through both grant making and employee engagement in the form of volunteering and other engagement initiatives, making a significant impact both internally and externally.

Since it was established, the Trust has given out over £3.3million in grants, donated over 48,000 hours of volunteering hours and supported thousands of young people in the process.

Aims of The Nomura Charitable Trust

The Nomura Charitable Trust is a robust grant making vehicle that gives strategic grants to charities in order to fund specific programmes or projects.

The Trust is employee led and built on employees' ideas. Not only are the supported charities recommended by Nomura employees, in addition each grant is closely linked to meaningful employee volunteering opportunities. When the Nomura Charitable Trust makes grants, the total contribution is not only financial.

The Trust gives out Grants once a year, and all charities have to be nominated by a Nomura London employee. The Trust supports particular projects or programmes through charities aligned with Nomura’s Community Affairs strategy. The criteria for charities supported through the Trust are:

  • A focus on employability potential especially as it relates to financial education
  • Socially disadvantaged young people, including those not in education, employment or training
  • With opportunities that focus on 16-24 year olds.
