‘Giving Back’ is one of Morgan Stanley’s five core values. For over 10 years Morgan Stanley has partnered with Pilotlight to develop a host of pro bono programmes for their employees in both London and Glasgow. Our programme offering includes: Pilotlight 360, Pilotlight Insight, and Pilotlight Impact Day, as well as also delivering Morgan Stanley’s own signature pro-bono programme, the Strategy Challenge in London.
More than 250 Morgan Stanley’s employees have donated over 20,500 hours, leveraging their business skills to help over 100 charities overcome their most difficult and mission-critical strategic challenges.
The partnership has helped transform a range of charities tackling social disadvantage across the UK including Access Sport, Centre Point, Magic Breakfast, Marie Curie, Power2, Prince's Trust, Rays of Sunshine, Shelter, The Children's Society, Think Forward, and Whizz-Kidz.
“Through our work with Pilotlight, we have been able to support our charity partners further by providing the business skills, knowledge and expertise they need to help them achieve their goals.”
Emma Tamblingson, Head of Community Affairs, Morgan Stanley
“This has probably been the most enriching experience of my career so far.”
Travis Ritz, UK Strategy Challenge participant, Morgan Stanley.
More on this partnership
I still have to pinch myself whenever I remember I’ve been at Pilotlight for over a year. I remember during my first week back in August 2020, as part of my induction, I attended the virtual Make a Difference Day.
Morgan Stanley today announced that the City Year UK team has won the seventh UK Strategy Challenge.
After many years of volunteering for charities, I can safely say that giving back has always been on my agenda.
