There are so many ways that businesses get involved and support Dorothy House Hospice Care. Our corporate partners make a crucial difference to the care we can provide.
Here are a few examples of how your business can get involved. For more information please contact Henrietta Beard on 01225 721 480 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Choose Dorothy House as your Charity of the Year:
Nominating the hospice as the chosen charity over a specific period is a popular choice for businesses; we can provide dynamic, interesting and innovative ways to help you fulfil your CSR aims
Make a corporate donation:
Apart from the philanthropic aspect to charitable giving, a limited company will pay less Corporation Tax if they donate money to charity (https://www.gov.uk/tax-limited-company-gives-to-charity)
Offer matched funding:
A great incentive for staff to raise money themselves is for the business to match it £ for £ thus doubling the amount raised. This creates a strong sense of team spirit and the company can also benefit from the Gift Aid scheme
Introduce cause related marketing:
There can be substantial positives for for-profit companies aligning with long-standing, well-loved local charities via their marketing campaigns
Sponsor an event:
Partnering Dorothy House in one of our high profile events during the year provides a great platform to deliver a positive message, show your commitment to our cause and gain substantial marketing and PR benefits
Sponsor a nurse for a year:
Your support would enable one of our palliative care nurses to be funded and your staff would gain a true insight into the care they deliver when they meet them for a talk and informal chats during the year
Initiate a sales partnership:
There can be huge benefits to the charity if a business were to include a small donation each time they make a sale – this strengthens customer engagement and increases loyalty to the business
Get involved with one of our events or run one of your own!
We host many events throughout the year offering great opportunities for business teams to enter. Alternatively, organisations can opt to run their own event such as a golf tournament, a ball, regular quizzes, a dress-down day or a cake sale – the possibilities are endless!
Instigate Payroll Giving:
Also known as Give As You Earn, is a way that employees can donate to Dorothy House direct from their salary. The company or pension-provider makes the donation before tax is calculated so the employee does not pay tax on the income they have chosen to donate.
Propose gifts in kind:
The charity welcomes goods such as obsolete stock to sell in our shops or use as auction prizes, these items may not cost the business anything but could be hugely beneficial to us
Volunteer for a day:
Many businesses now encourage staff to offer their time for a day at a local charity and this can be a powerful tool for team building not to mention the huge advantage to the hospice! We can create bespoke programmes for staff to ensure a rewarding day for all.
