Ways to support us
By choosing us as your charity of the year, we can work together to build a bespoke calendar of engaging fundraising activities for your staff. We can support your charity champions, senior managers and HR team and provide information to help you nominate us as your charity of the year.
We are currently developing a calendar of events and campaigns and would love to work with local and national companies through bespoke sponsorship packages. Sponsorship is a great way to support us while increasing awareness of your brand.
By giving a Gift in Kind, your company can support us through donating items which will support our fundraising, such as raffle or auction prizes for a ball or refreshments for challenge events. Donating products, services or professional advice is a great way to utilise your company’s assets and professional skills while giving back to the community.
As a charity that supports one of the biggest NHS organisations in the UK, we want to work with partners who share our passion for saving and improving lives. If your Corporate Social Responsibility strategy is aligned to what we do, then we want to work with you at a strategic level to help transform healthcare for our patients.
One way of supporting us could be through donating a proportion of profits from a product or service. Supporting us in this way can help your business stand out from the crowd and demonstrate to staff, customers and key stakeholders your commitment to supporting the NHS.
Lots of companies offer match funding (also known as matched giving), which gives staff the chance to boost their fundraising as their employer will match the money they've raised. Some companies offer this on a pound-for-pound basis, while others will specify the amount they're prepared to give. If you’re organising a fundraiser, check with your employer to see if this is something they provide.
Pennies from Heaven is an easy way for staff to donate the spare pennies from their payslip to us. The most each employee can donate is 99p a month (less than £12 a year!), making giving accessible to everyone.
Once your workplace is registered, staff sign up directly with Pennies from Heaven through your payroll system and donations will automatically be made to NorthCare Charity when you receive your payslip – it’s as simple as that.
Payroll Giving is a great and simple way for staff to make a monthly donation to charity, straight from their salary, before tax is deducted. It’s easy for companies to set up too and helps demonstrate your charitable support. Visit our Payroll Giving page.
Allowing your staff time off to support our charity is a great way to help others while improving your own staff’s welfare and morale. Whether your company already runs an employer-supported volunteering (ESV) scheme or you’re interested in seeing what opportunities we have, then visit our Volunteer page.
Thanks to generous donations and support from businesses such as Clarins, we were able to give our NHS staff special hampers full of treats to lift their spirits during Covid-19.
Clarins donated thousands of skin care products, which certainly brought a smile to lots of faces (behind the masks!)
