Accountancy firm MHA Moore and Smalley is launching a new charitable foundation that will promote financial literacy and nurture career and life skills for young people. 

With offices in Liverpool, Preston, Manchester, Blackpool East Midlands, Kendal and Lancaster, MHA Moore and Smalley has 29 partners and employs more than 400 staff.

The firm was established in 1892 and so it has called this new initiative the 1892 Foundation. It will fund projects that promote financial literacy and nurture career and life skills for young people.

Launched on the UN’s International Day of Charity, the foundation will support the work of Community Foundations in the UK who will help direct the funding to projects and organisations across all areas where MHA Moore and Smalley has offices.

Graham Gordon, managing partner of MHA Moore and Smalley, said: “We’re committed to improving access to financial education to equip the next generation with essential economic skills, something not always covered in schools.

“During the last couple of years, we’ve supported several projects and organisations through the Community Foundations network.

“Partnering with them to establish the 1892 Foundation was the natural next step in building on our partnership with this fantastic cause.

“We chose 1892 because it recognises our history while positively influencing the future. Working with the network ensures we can do just that by supporting the communities across all of our office locations.”

MHA Moore and Smalley’s purpose project developed from the firm’s ESG (environmental, social and governance) strategy and will help it achieve the first of four key goals set out in its impact statement to be achieved in this financial year.
