Aberdeen Standard Investments Charitable Foundation

It’s In the Can

Gaining exposure for the generous philanthropy of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Charitable Foundation is heart-warming…. whether it was getting Chief Exec Martin Gilbert into painting overalls or promoting the work of Wings for Warriors which helps wounded veterans gain their pilot’s licence – watch our video about the charity here: 


The Foundation principles mean that regional committees of employees are empowered to develop their local approach to charitable giving, supporting causes that are relevant to their community and the local team
