We never cease to be amazed at the innovative ways people find to raise funds for us, so if you’ve got an idea in mind, we’d love to hear it and help you make it happen. In the meantime, here are some of the ways that you can support us.
Our work wouldn’t be possible without the support of our generous Corporate Partners. Our partnerships come in all shapes and sizes, from charity of the year and targeted campaigns, to long-standing relationships.
MAKE US YOUR CHARITY OF THE YEAR
We know that a great Charity of the Year Partnership can have a long-lasting impact on both organisations. Supporting a charity doesn’t just help you meet your CSR goals, it also increases employee engagement and helps generate positive publicity for your company. The great thing about supporting a local charity, like STAR, is that your support directly benefits the community that you and your employees live and work in.
Does your company have a charity of the year? Could they set up payroll giving to help us raise money? Why not speak to your company owners or directors and encourage them to support local children. Nominating STAR as your company’s charity of the year is a brilliant way to get your whole team working together to improve the lives of disadvantaged children.
ORGANISE AN EVENT
If you are unable to support us for a whole year, why not organise a one-o fundraising event or challenge at your place of work. You could enter a team in a sporting challenge to climb a mountain, a half marathon or 10k race, cycle from A to B, or if you prefer something less energetic then perhaps organise a charity ball, fashion show, auction or quiz night, or arrange a company raffle or bake-off.
ENCOURAGE PAYROLL GIVING
A simple and effective way of giving money each month is through Payroll Giving, which is quick and easy to set up through your HR or finance department. Why not encourage your staff to donate just £1 each month? If 10 team members sign-up, this will raise enough to fund a bowling outing for a child with their PROMISEworks mentor.
STAR would like to thank our current partnerships for the invaluable help they have given us this year.
