The Financial Industry in Tokyo (FIT) is dedicated to supporting non-profit community organisations serving important, but not necessarily well-recognised needs, with limited fundraising capabilities.
The FIT For Charity 2023 Organising Committee is pleased to announce the five beneficiary charities we will be supporting this year. After a thorough review, the charities were selected through a voting process held amongst eligible FIT sponsor firms.
This year’s beneficiary organisations are as follows.
Providing food assistance to people in need living in the vicinity of Shibuya Ward.
Providing support for isolated young pregnant women/mothers and their children aged 10 to 20.
Supporting impoverished families from isolation through platform such as free delivery of groceries.
Engaging in activities to support families of children with serious illnesses from various aspects.
Providing barrier-free information for people with difficulties in mobility, such as those with disabilities and the elderly.
Aiming to connect people with disabilities (children) and the elderly to society through arts and sports.
Providing support as a one-stop center related to the protection of children's rights, especially for children who have been victims of abuse, sexual violence, bullying, etc.,
Nurturing talents to protect forests and convey the importance of nature to people.
Beneficiary charities that represent FIT’s principles are chosen from organisations in the Kanto area and the funds are divided equally among them. As FIT Organising Committee is not a standing organisation, each year, FIT selects anew the organisations it chooses to support, allowing FIT to cover a broad range of organisations and social causes in our local community.
Because all members of the FIT For Charity Organising Committee are themselves unpaid volunteers, and because almost everything needed to hold the FIT event is donated by companies and their employees, the charity organisations supported by FIT receive approximately 90% of the total funds collected.
