Philanthropy and Employee Volunteerism
Marsh makes donations to a wide range of charitable and not-for-profit organizations. General policies and guidelines for such giving are established centrally, with country management applying them as appropriate locally.
Marsh staff are encouraged to engage with, and contribute to the well-being of their local communities. This support varies from country to country and is demonstrated in a variety of ways, including the provision of a day’s paid leave to assist on a community project and having a portion of an employee’s charitable fund-raising matched by the company.
Please note that Marsh is not accepting new partnership requests at this time. We thank you for your interest in our firm.

Puerto Rican Association of the Blind (October to December 2018)
The fourth quarter of 2018 was dedicated to the Puerto Rican Association of the Blind.
Founded in 1964, the Puerto Rican association of the blind is a nonprofit organization that offers reading and writing of the Braille System. They attend to the needs of daily life through workshops and trainings for greater independence of the blind person.
Through various activities in the office from raffles, Bake Sales and breakfasts, we managed to raise enough funds for the purchase of materials and paint. The colleagues of Marsh Saldaña not only contributed monetarily, but they dedicated hours of their days to collaborate in the cleaning and painting of the structure of what is now the Association.
It is this kind of activities that remind us once again, how blessed we are, because we forget that there are people who need more support to do daily activities, such as walking the sidewalks, cleaning their homes, shopping from the pantry or just walk around the park on the corner.
Many thanks to the colleagues once again for saying present in and so noble cause!
