The Artemis Charitable Foundation was founded in 2007.
Each year, Artemis gives a proportion of revenues to the foundation, which manages our charitable activities and our involvement in the wider world. Our staff and the trustees choose which charities will benefit. The foundation supports ‘core’ charities in the UK and internationally in the following areas:
The foundation also makes donations to global disasters and emergencies when they occur.
We encourage our staff to get involved as much as possible through:
- Staff-nominated Charity of the Year and Cancer Charity of the Year
- Support for staff who are undertaking fundraising challenges
- Volunteering with our partner charities
- Charity trips overseas
- Give As You Earn matched funding
Artemis also sponsors several charity-related events each year, including The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon, an exhilarating test of stamina, strength and fitness through some of the most spectacular and historic areas of the Scottish Highlands.

How would you invest £5 million?
Working in partnership with leading organisations, Arrival Education has helped over 15,000 socially and ethnically diverse young people, aged 9-26, develop the knowledge, skills and mindsets needed to flourish in top companies.
In 2019, the Artemis Profit Hunt programme provided a unique experience for Arrival Education students – working with professionals on a real-world business challenge: investing in the stock market. Over a period of five months, 11 teams of students worked with 22 volunteers from Artemis to select and manage a portfolio of stocks.
Remarkably, all 11 teams’ portfolios delivered positive returns. The winning team’s portfolio returned an incredible 38%, significantly ahead of the average market return over the time period. Read the full 2019 Artemis Profit Hunter programme report (PDF opens in a new window)
