At Janus Henderson, we believe investing is a two-way street.
The Janus Henderson Foundation has been the primary giving arm of our organisation. We put our passion and commitment to work to help people reach their goals through our investment products as well as our investments in the community. In both cases our goal is the same – to make life, and lives better.
To create opportunities to help children succeed and achieve their goals through education, as well as support communities and organisations around the world.
Developing Leaders in Learning
At Janus Henderson, we are committed to ensuring that every child has access to a quality education. We proudly support programmes that foster blended learning, early childhood literacy, enhanced student/teacher relationships and financial education initiatives, including the Young Americans Center for Financial Literacy, KickStart Money and RedSTART. By supporting initiatives that improve the educational experience and learning potential of children, we hope to make a meaningful impact on student achievement and cultivate the talent of the future.
Being There, When it Matters Most
The Janus Henderson Foundation is committed to supporting the ever-evolving needs of communities across the world, especially in times of need. We act globally by partnering with the Disaster Emergency Committee to respond to appeals; most recently by addressing the East African Crisis Appeal and Myanmar Refugee Appeal. We have supported additional organisations in response to a variety of needs, including Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, Katrina, Sandy and Matthew, the tsunamis in Japan and Thailand, the earthquakes in Nepal and Italy and Colorado and California wildfires.
A Culture of Giving Back
We believe the path to a better world starts at home. As such, we've fostered a corporate culture of social awareness and volunteering among our own employees that has enabled us to extend our philanthropic reach to thousands of deserving organisations across the globe. Our people are empowered to give through various Matching Gift Programmes and volunteering is fostered through company events and an allotment of Community Investment Time. Through these grass-roots initiatives, we support children’s hospitals in Cambodia, community projects for deprived areas in the US and UK and research projects that help combat some of the leading diseases impacting populations worldwide.

Janus Henderson seeks to give back in ways that are reflective of our employee’s passions, both locally and across the world. To accomplish this, we invest in regional programmes that support the communities where we live and work, such as Angkor Hospital for Children, Bear Cottage and Cure Cancer Australia.
Supporting our employee’s philanthropic activity and giving back to our local communities is central to the community pillar of our corporate social responsibility strategy. In the UK, our areas of focus include financial education initiatives, including KickStart Money, and employee volunteering with organisations that include Community Links and RedSTART. We also invest in making the city of London better for all by supporting the Lord Mayor’s Appeal Charity.
Giving back to the communities most in need is an essential part of our strategy and it is important that we invest in education to help develop the future leaders of tomorrow. From grants and philanthropic programmes sponsored by the Janus Henderson Foundation to grass-roots volunteerism spearheaded by employees, Janus Henderson has – and continues to – make a significant impact in the U.S. by investing in organisations like the Denver Public Schools Foundation, Young Americans Center for Financial Education and Camp Boggy Creek.
