Sprott Asset Management LP is dedicated to helping children and their families, lead happier and healthier lives. We recognize the responsibility of protecting children to ensure a brighter future.
The Charitable Donations Committee has a two-pronged approach to charitable giving. Sprott Asset Management assists charitable organizations in meeting their goals not only by granting them corporate donations but also by encouraging employees of the Corporation to participate in charitable giving through the Corporation's Employee Matching Program.
Corporate donations will be made only to registered charities focusing on children's needs. The decisions as to the charities supported will be reviewed annually by the Committee.
Sprott Asset Management has committed over $2 million in donations. The current charities the firm is involved with include the following:
Gold for Good, Bald for Good
Sprott Asset Management Senior Portfolio Manager Charles Oliver's bold prediction on Gold going to $2000 may not have happened yet, but it's paying big dividends for charity.
He has asked friends and colleagues in the gold business, who have all benefited from the rise in bullion, to support him by donating to a fund for World Vision Canada, CARE Canada, UNICEF Canada and the Terry Fox Foundation. He wrote the first cheque, giving $100,000, and he has so far raised more than $1-million. The charities were chosen because of their focus on children, often in areas where gold mining is active.
