Businesses and organisations are in an unique position to offer their company services to provide valuable support to a charity or to achieve a bigger task that cannot be easily achieved through individual volunteers. The following are some ways that your company can get involved:
Charity of the Year
Many organisations have a charity of the year to organize their fundraising and volunteering dedicated to that charity. Please do consider us as your charity of the year.
Corporate Volunteer Days
Come and serve with us for your corporate volunteer day and not only will it be a team-building experience for your team, but will also enable us to run vital services for those in need. Contact Steve Smith, Volunteer Coordinator on 0117 405 7112, email@example.com for more information.
Does your organisation run fundraising events in support of a charity’s work? We would love to be your beneficiary charity as without your help and support we could not run our essential services.
Could your company share your services to support our charity to run better, strategically and with specialist support? We are particularly seeking IT & website support, building maintenance & cleaning, computer equipment and financial auditing. Contact Ruth Cooper, Finance & Operations Manager on 0117 405 7110, firstname.lastname@example.org to have an informal chat.
Many organisations run a matched funding scheme, matching an employee’s fundraising from a sponsored event. If you are fundraising for us, do check with your company whether they do matched funding. Or you can encourage your company to fundraise for us by running a matched funding scheme.
You can donate regularly to a charity of your choice by donating directly from your monthly payslip before tax has been deducted. Therefore for every £1 you donate, it will only cost you 80p if you are a basic taxpayer, and if you are a higher taxpayer it would be 60p. The taxman pays the rest! Check with your human resources dept about how you can set up payroll giving.
