CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS

CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS

Many businesses and organisations have Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) programmes.

Benefits of partnering with a charity

We help you help us, and we know that it’s important to you that the business benefits as much as CASPA.

  • We help to raise your profile and provide media coverage of your activities through the local press, social media, and our website and publications.
  • Your staff receive notifications to take part in any of our challenge events such as Wing Walking and Half Marathons.
  • We’re full of great ideas to help you fundraise for CASPA – and have fun doing so. If you need inspiration, we’re here.
  • You can see the difference you make to CASPA by meeting our families and joining us at events such as The Green Mile.
  • Staff can volunteer for us, building their own skills and supporting people who need them the most.
  • And we say thank you with cards and Certificates.

Fundraising

Many organisations choose to financially support our work. Corporate philanthropy and employee fundraising initiatives help us to deliver our clubs and activities. We promise that the money you and your staff raise will be spent on support and provisions for our Autistic community.

Payroll giving

Payroll Giving is a way of giving money to charity without paying tax on it. It’s a really simple way of donating to CASPA, as it simply comes out of your PAYE every month. Payroll giving is easy to set up, and helps CASPA get regular income in a way that is also tax efficient for you and your colleagues.

  1. Speak to your Payroll/HR department to see if they already have a scheme in place, or they can register with a provider such as CAF or Charities Trust
  2. Once your employer is set up, register your payroll gift
  3. Your employer will then deduct the donation from your salary before tax – they may even match your donation to CASPA.

MATCH FUNDING

Does your company offer Match Funding?

Match funding is a simple way of maximising the amount of money/funds CASPA can raise.
An increasing number of large companies operate a match funding scheme whereby they “match” charity fundraising undertaken by their employees.  The amounts donated range from approximately £250 to £1000+ per employee per event. 

As CASPA is a registered charity we are in a position to benefit from your involvement, however big or small, at any fundraising event. Your participation might be, for example, managing a stall or helping with the raffle. Both qualify as assisting with fundraising.  

Some organisations will match fund on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give. Some companies will also pledge time and resources instead of money.  Barclays for example offer their employees the opportunity to match funds they raise for their chosen charity up to £750 per year.  In 2010 with match funding Barclays employees raised a staggering 18 million pounds for charities of their choice. 

Applying for match funding is a simple process which involves a call to your company HR department. They will then send you a form that CASPA can help you to complete confirming your involvement and once approved CASPA will receive a cheque from the Charities Aid Foundation for the respective amount.  

Just some of the companies believed to offer matched funding:
Amazon, Aviva, HSBC, Tesco, Bank of America, Ipsos Mori, Texaco, Barclays,  JP Morgan Chase, UBS, Benfield Group, Kingfisher PLC, Unilever, BP, Legal and General, Yorkshire Bank, British Telecom, Lloyds TSB / HBOS, Whitbread, British Gas, Microsoft, Thames Water, Camelot, O2, Shell, Costcutter, RBS Group, Vodafone, Co-op, Royal Dutch, Shell, Daryl Industries, RWE,NPower, Deloitte, Santander, Diageo, Schroders, Ernst and Young, Sky, Experian, Tarmac, PLUS MANY MORE!

Please do take the time to check if your company offers match funding!

Working with your CSR Team

Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives usually fall within four main areas:

Workplace – What is the best way to look after your employees and other workers?
Market Place – What impact do the charity services have in the community?
Environment–How can we improve our environmental impact locally?
Community – How can your organisation contribute to CASPA with a positive outcome?

Corporate Responsibility matters, because wider societal issues matter to people. In ‘doing the right thing’ by your stakeholders and sharing the same values, your organisation will see the benefits-from brand enhancement and reputation to building employee engagement. It, therefore, makes good business sense to operate sustainably with CASPA!
