Pilotlight facilitates the UK edition of the Morgan Stanley Strategy Challenge

For the fourth year running, Pilotlight is delighted to support the UK edition of the Morgan Stanley Strategy Challenge, the Firm’s signature skills-based pro bono volunteer programme. As Bruce McCombie, Head of Partnerships said: “We’re very proud to partner with Morgan Stanley on the Strategy Challenge. This brilliant initiative enables charities to access the skills and strategic insights of Morgan Stanley employees to address their mission-critical challenges.”

Over the course of eight weeks, and facilitated by Pilotlight, teams of Morgan Stanley employees in London will work with the leadership teams of 5 non-profit organisations to provide strategic recommendations to help them amplify impact in their communities.

The five charities taking part in this year’s programme are:

Barnardo’s – Barnardo’s is one of the UK’s oldest and largest children’s charities dedicated to transforming the lives of the most vulnerable children.

Marie Curie – Marie Curie is the UK’s leading charity caring for people living with any terminal illness, and their families.

Place2Be – Place2Be is the UK's leading children's mental health charity working in 282 schools across the UK to provide early-intervening emotional and mental health support to 116,000 children and their families.

Save the Children – Save the Children gives children in the UK and around the world a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.

Unicef UK – Unicef works around the world, including in the UK, to keep children healthy, happy and safe.

Morgan Stanley has just released two short videos on Place2Be and why they’ve got involved in the challenge, and a profile piece on one of the Morgan Stanley employees taking part in the project. Take a look at the videos here:
