Corporate Partnerships

It made me realise how much hard work goes into a running a charity, it was a fun and interesting day.

Why choose Wakefield Hospice as your Charity of the Year?

If you are looking for a charity partner that will help you make a difference at a community level, Wakefield Hospice is your ideal partner.

Having a Charity of the Year will bring a positive impact to your company by promoting team spirit and boosting staff morale, bringing your employees together in an organised and coordinated way.

We have experienced and committed team on hand to support you at every step to make the most of the partnership.

A spokesman from Yorkshire Bank said: "Many thanks for giving us the opportunity to do some work for you. All of the team & myself had a really enjoyable day and hope we added some value with our efforts on Tuesday. I do hope we can help you on an ongoing basis....."

There are a number of ways you can get involved and make a difference:

Staff Fundraising
A fun, friendly way of making a difference. There are a number of internal benefits of developing a partnership, but whether it be our Sporting Dinners, Gala Nights, Golf Days, Survival Weekends, White Water Rafting, Christmas Parties or Climbing Mountains, we can help devise a yearly programme to suit your company diary, budget and staff interests.

Matched funding
Many companies offer “matched funding” schemes to support their employees’ fundraising activities. Matched funding could be invaluable in helping you to raise as much money as possible, so it is well worth asking your employer if they provide such a scheme.

Whether you want to sponsor an event or simply attend, this is a great way of treating your clients (CRM) and add value to the service you provide.

We are continually updating our list of forthcoming events, so do keep an eye out or call the fundraising department 01924 213900, for further information.

Increase brand awareness, establish/retain a positive image, illustrate corporate responsibility, attract new clients……..
