Obelisk In Action

Obelisk share profits with charity at Christmas

Obelisk is giving 1% of net profits to Crisis UK, the national charity for single homeless people.

The company’s clients and consultants were invited to select one charity from a list of three; NSPCC, The Prince’s Trust and Crisis.

More than 100 people took part in the poll. NSPCC got 38%, Prince’s Trust 18%, making Crisis a clear winner with 44% of the vote.

Dana Denis-Smith, CEO and founder of Obelisk Support said: “This is the first year we’ve made a donation to charity but this is something we are pleased and proud to do this year and every year. Crisis will receive our first yearly donation of 1% of net profit. We’ve had a good year and want to share. And giving is very much a part of our values here at Obelisk. We are not a company purely focused on making money. We are human first, so it feels right, especially at this time of year, to give our money to a great cause like Crisis.”

Crisis is dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change. The charity has two main aims:

  • to do more for more homeless people in more places across the UK and help to change their lives for good.
  • to change the way society thinks and acts towards homeless people
