Companies are increasingly aware of their community and social responsibilities and involvement in charity work is becoming a vital part of corporate key aims.

For much information download our corporate fundraising pack.

  • Charity of the year partnership
  • Employee fundraising

Charity of the year partnerships

These relationships are ideal to motivate employees as well as achieve your company’s corporate responsibility strategy. Our fundrasing team can help you generate ideas, tailor them according to your business environment and of course, have fun while you’re doing it!

Employee / Group Fundraising

Fundraising for a charity offers a unique way for staff to build on communication and organisation skills, take on new responsibilities and provide excellent team building opportunities.

Why not link up to one of challenges on the Global Adventure Challenges website - we are registered as an official challnege with them. For example you could pedal from London to Paris, trek across the Alps or cycle from Havanna to Santa Clara. More details can be found at  Global Adventure Challenges.


Company Donation

If your company would like to support us by making a donation, please contact The Fundraising Team.

To help us trace your payment, please use your company name as a reference when paying money into our account.

Sponsorship

We have various events and opportunities available for corporate sponsorship throughout the year. We will be happy to tailor packages to suit your company.

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is one of the easiest ways for employees to give regularly to The Gingerbread Centre plus it’s both flexible and tax efficient. Employees choose how much they want to give each month. The donation then comes off their gross pay, before the tax man touches it.
