FitzGibbon’s Clients Raise Money for Staff of Agency that Closed in December

by | Jan 12, 2016

Clients of international PR firm FitzGibbon, which closed after allegations relating to its founder, set up a fund for former employees who received no severance pay, reports PRWeek.

The generosity.com account had received more than $35,010 in donations from the agency’s former clients including UltraViolet, MoveOn, Global Zero and SumOfUs, continued the PRWeek report.

The PRWeek report, in part, added:

“The money raised will go directly to former staff members in the UK and the US to help them pay for overhead costs such as rent, food, student debt, medical and utility bills.

“Many former employees have opted out to ensure that only those most in need receive the donations.

“The agency was closed, with no advance warning, on 17 December. The news of its closure was first reported in The Huffington Post, which revealed that a number of female staff had come forward with complaints against its founder and president, Trevor FitzGibbon.”

FitzGibbon Media had offices in D.C., New York, San Francisco and London, and worked for, among others, Amnesty International, WikiLeaks and The Guardian.

The generosity.com account closed on January 13.
