Nuveen’s charitable contributions scheme is an annual programme, giving the firm the opportunity to support charities aligned to their values of inclusion, diversity and equity.

Our thanks to Nuveen for this amazing partnership and the ongoing support to our charity!

"This partnership demonstrates Nuveen’s continued commitment to making an impact within the communities where we live and work. The latest partnership on behalf of Nuveen’s Alliance BRG, which has over 160 members across six countries, is the latest in a series of campaigns we have been running to support LGBTQ+ people around the world.

We have launched the contribution this month in honour of Pride Month, which is dedicated to the celebration of LGBTQ+ pride all around the world. It builds on our programme of international events which have included our participation in Pride marches around the world, bake sales, and internal talks educating our community on key issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community.”
Melissa St Clair, Head of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity at Nuveen
“This partnership with Nuveen amplifies our voice at such a critical time. As the UK’s only LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity, we understand the importance of Pride for engaging businesses, with more than half of our corporate donations made during the Pride season. But ongoing partnerships like this are vital to our ongoing services to support LGBTQ+ young people at risk of homelessness all year round.

We are passionate about collaborating with corporate partners like Nuveen, who are committed to LGBTQ+ inclusion and equality internally, and who are seeking to build meaningful partnerships. From everyone at akt, we thank Nuveen for their support.”
