CAMPAIGN: COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

CONTENT: Newsletter

After two unique and challenging years, many Franklin Templeton’s sites have returned to the office and employees continue to settle in. Virtual volunteering has been a great way to engage over the past years and there have been lots of innovative ways to do that, but in-person projects continue to be the favorite. Involved events are a great opportunity for employees to connect with fellow coworkers, meet new colleagues and connect with peers and community organizations.

The Race Against the Plastic
On April 21, Franklin Templeton, together with Jupiter Asset Management and over 30 clients, joined for annual fundraising 8k/4k runs around Kungliga Djurgarden, a park on an island in the center of Stockholm. The team raised US$8,580 (£6,828), including a company match from Franklin Templeton and Jupiter, all to benefit Ocean Generation, an inclusive global movement working to restore a healthy relationship between humanity and the ocean through science and storytelling.

Junior Achievement of South Florida’s Finance Park
On April 29, Franklin Templeton volunteers in Florida attended Junior Achievement’s Finance Park and guided a group of eighth graders through a financial budget activity, educational paths and potential future careers. Volunteers helped the middle schoolers navigate through a real life simulation. The event was a memorable experience for all, as it was the first in- person activity in many months.
