The objective of Godwin's Charitable Contributions Committee is to encourage charitable giving and employee participation in a way that reaches a diverse group of relevant charitable organisations.
Annual giving will be divided among efforts that include education, emergency and disaster relief, environmental, medical, arts and humanities, and support to armed forces families.
The company will also begin a programme for matching gifts based on employees' contributions to specific charitable organisations, and continue initiatives from previous years.
