At Ferranti, we prioritize our social responsibility and are deeply committed to creating a meaningful impact. A few years ago, we proudly introduced “Ferranti 4 Charity,” a heartfelt initiative that unites our entire organization in a collective effort to raise funds for various charitable causes.

How does it work?

Each year, we select a new cause. Our mission is to make a meaningful impact by supporting numerous organizations. The choice of charity rests entirely in the hands of our Ferranti colleagues, who vote for the cause closest to their hearts.

Once the charity is chosen, the real excitement begins, as our vibrant “Fun at Work” team springs into action, curating numerous engaging initiatives.

Throughout the past few years, we’ve witnessed the magic of generosity through a series of wonderful events, including:

  • Colleagues that could buy croques during lunch
  • The offering of freshly made spaghetti
  • Some tasty sweets brought to the colleagues desks
  • And to top it all off, experiencing the enchantment of the Ferranti Christmas market.

For which charity are we raising money this year?

More information will follow soon!

2022: UZA immunotherapie

Amount collected:€3.659✨ collected and doubled by Ferranti, so donated ✨ €7.318

Immunotherapy is a novel form of treatment for blood and lymph node cancers, utilizing the patient’s own immune system to target and destroy cancer cells. Unlike the conventional cancer treatments involving chemotherapy and radiation, immunotherapy directly focuses on killing cancer cells. By combining immunotherapy with traditional treatments, the chances of cure or disease control for specific cancers can be significantly increased.

2018: VZW Lilly

Amount collected:€1 534.65✨ collected and doubled by Ferranti, so donated ✨€3 069,30

With Associazione Lilly – or, for many, the Lilly family – they are committed to helping stray dogs in Sardinia. But what does this actually entail, you may wonder? Lilly supports three shelters, two located on the island’s east coast, and one on the west coast. They provide them with food and supplies, assist with the sterilization and castration of abandoned pups, and work together to find loving homes for these dogs.

The Lilly family is a close-knit organization comprised of dedicated volunteers. Their motto is: “Everyone does what they can AND want to do!” As a non-profit organization, they rely on donations, monthly auctions, and the proceeds from numerous flea markets they organize. In essence, each member contributes their own part, making them a group united in their mission.
