Support us through your business or workplace
Supporting a local charity creates closer links with your community. It can also enhance your brand and create positive PR. Engaging your staff, clients and customers encourages team-building and boosts employee morale, as well as building loyalty to the company. And as a relatively small, local charity, your donations to WHY go a long way and make a huge difference to the work we can do.
Our energetic, passionate and friendly team can visit you at your workplace and support you with your activities. We can provide case studies and quotes from clients to help you demonstrate the impact of our partnership. And, of course, you will receive regular updates about the money you raise.
Partnering with WHY can help your company achieve its corporate social responsibility objectives and put money back into your local community, as well as providing excellent fundraising and team building opportunities for your staff.
WHY offers a wide range of fun events that staff can get involved in, from regular skydives and overseas treks, to local half marathons, tea parties and much more. Our charity partners also provide in-kind support by providing products and services, or by donating a percentage of the cost when people mention us on using services. Our friendly and energetic staff team will support you with planning, fundraising and publicising your events.
Payroll giving is quick and easy to set up and allows employees to donate directly from their salary, before tax. It enables employers to show their support to a cause that they and their staff care about and staff can donate before tax is deducted, meaning a £10 donation costs a basic rate taxpayer £8.
Sponsoring a fundraising event could make it cost neutral to WHY, boosting our total while boosting your brand awareness. We'll display your logo on banners, flyers and other materials and thank you through our social media channels. Or why not donate a prize for an auction or raffle?
Donate a percentage of profit
Research from Business in the Community shows that 86% of consumers are more likely to buy a product that is associated with a cause or issue and 73% of consumers would switch brands to do this. Many of the people we support appreciate information about relevant services available in the area.
Donate a service
Could your business offer in-kind support to WHY? For example, at WHY we receive free IT support from Netitude and local suppliers Futurform supply our printer and toner cartridges. Could you help us by printing our Christmas cards or our annual report, or cover the cost of software licences? This type of support is invaluable to WHY and helps us to achieve our goals.
