Morgan Stanley donates £150,000 to GOSH, which the Treasury will double

Posted On: 07/12/15

The Independent and London Evening Standard’s Give to GOSH appeal received a huge boost yesterday when the bank, Morgan Stanley, announced a donation of £150,000, becoming the campaign’s first corporate backer.

A vital appeal

The sum, which will be doubled to £300,000 thanks to the Treasury’s commitment to match every pound raised by the appeal, will go toward helping seriously ill children and their families at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). 

The Give to GOSH campaign has already received high-profile backing from celebrities including Johnny Depp and David Beckham, but the global bank is the first corporation to dig deep and make a generous donation. Clare Woodman, the chief operating officer of Morgan Stanley International, noted the difference that fundraising can make to places like GOSH:

“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work has long been embedded in Morgan Stanley’s culture. “Having worked in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity since 2007, we’ve seen first-hand how donations can make a real difference for the hospital’s young patients and their families. We would urge other businesses to join us in supporting this vital appeal.”
