Corporate fundraising events and ideas
There are many ways your company can support Humankind. Here are just a few ideas:
- Being your Charity of Choice: many organisations undertake various fundraising activities throughout the year, with donations going to a “charity of the year” or charity of choice. We would love to speak to you about becoming your Charity of Choice
- Sponsorship of our events or holding your own fundraising event to support Humankind
- Charity dinners and black-tie balls
- Participation in sporting events on behalf of Humankind
- Pro bono support: if you have a skill to share, please get in touch!
- Gifts in kind: if your business can support us with donations of white goods, essential items or toys to help our service users and families, or office furniture to help our staff, please get in touch.
We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the ability to hold public events, but please don’t let that stop you working with us at Humankind! Here are a few suggestions
- Sponsored dress down days: or if your teams are currently working from home, perhaps a sponsored “dress up” day!
- Sales sponsorship: for example, collecting donations for us within your retail outlets or venues, or donating a percentage of income from the sale of a specific product
- Sponsored bake sales: if you’re able to do this safely, this is a great way to raise funds and an excuse for a mid-week treat!
- Corporate volunteering partnerships: a fantastic opportunity for both personal and professional development. To find out more about how your staff can volunteer with us, please see our volunteering page.
Our team can also help you to hold bespoke fundraising events – to arrange an initial chat or for a corporate sponsorship pack, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
