We wouldn’t be able to fund the life-saving research that we do without the loyalty and commitment of our corporate partners. Whether you are an employer or employee, get your company involved and help make a positive difference to the lives of children suffering from rare conditions. Our experienced Corporate Partnerships team will be with you every step of the way to ensure the partnership is a success.
Whether it’s employee engagement, positive PR or increased brand awareness, there are lots of great reasons to become a corporate partner of Sparks Charity. At Sparks, we have a passionate Corporate Partnerships Team who are experts in delivering mutually-beneficial and inspiring partnerships which will bring lasting benefits to your company whilst helping to raise vital funds for pioneering child health research.
We take time to introduce your staff to the valuable work we do, with inspiring stories about children and families who wouldn’t have the lives they have today if it wasn’t for our research.
Make us your Charity of the Year
Nominate us as your company’s chosen charity and we will work with you to develop a partnership which fits with your strategic or corporate social responsibility aims, inspires your employees and engages your customers. We fund research into a range of different childhood conditions which means that many people will have been affected – or know someone who’s been affected – by our work.
Our calendar of special fundraising events is attended by celebrities, companies and lots of enthusiastic Sparks supporters. Whether it’s attending our annual Winter Ball or working with our golf team to create a bespoke charity tournament for your company, our events are the perfect place for you to entertain clients and network, whilst helping to make a real difference to children’s lives.
Sponsoring an event is a great way to generate positive PR for your organisation, raise your brand profile and entertain clients whilst supporting our pioneering work. We have a range of different sponsorship options available.
Make a corporate donation
We always welcome ways in which we can save money so that more can go towards vital child health research. Your company can help in the following ways:
- Donate a venue
We are always looking for exciting venues to host our events which are attended by a large and influential audience. By allowing Sparks to use your theatre, conference room, sporting facilities, gallery or restaurant we will significantly reduce our costs and you will raise awareness of your company and showcase your venue
- Donate auction and raffle prizes
This is an easy way for you to support Sparks and for us to raise the standards of our events. It is also a great way for you to promote a product and raise your company profile.
- Gifts in Kind
Your company could donate equipment or services to help us reduce our costs.
This is one of the most effective ways to support Sparks and a valuable source of income for charities because it helps us budget and plan ahead more effectively.
Payroll giving is a government approved scheme allowing employees to donate to us directly from their salaries before tax is deducted meaning we will receive much more. Employers may match employee donations.
Fundraising at work
From cake sales to raffles, there are many great ways you can fundraise at work. Our fundraising guide is full of ideas and tips to make your event a success.
Team challenge events
Why not take part in a 5km fun run, a cycle challenge, or push yourself to you limits with a marathon? This is a great chance for you to take on that challenge you’ve always wanted to with the support of your workmates and Sparks. If you’d like to take on a challenge, build team spirit and raise some money then get in touch and we’ll tell you how to do it.
