Business Support

By choosing to support Charity Link, you can help many more local people living in hardship or experiencing crisis to have the very basics in life that we all deserve, including a warm bed to sleep in and the means to provide a hot meal.

A list of our current ‘Proud Business Supporters’ – businesses giving significant support to Charity Link – can be found at the bottom of this page.

However, we value all levels of support and we love working with the local business community.  We would be delighted to hear from you if you’d be interested in discussing how working together could be mutually beneficial: together we really can change lives whilst also having great fun!

We work with business partners in a very individual way – please contact us to chat about what your Corporate Social Responsibility objectives are and we can tailor activity to support to your needs and agreed outcomes.

Opportunities include:
Staff fundraising/volunteering.
Choosing Charity Link as your ‘charity of the year’ or beneficiary of a one-off fundraising activity or event.
Donating prizes for one of our fundraising events.
Sponsoring an event or activity, such as our annual Charity Link’s Leicestershire Three Peaks Challenge – there are lots of support opportunities currently available! 
Entering a corporate team for one of our activities (or planning your own).
Providing gifts in kind to help with our work…

You can of course also give a straight donation to support our work – we would be hugely grateful for your support in this way! This also has tax benefits for the business as you can deduct the value of your charitable donation from the company profits before paying your corporation tax.

We can tell you just what a difference your support will make in the local community too; due to our unique way of working (for every £10 donated we can untap £50 from charitable trusts around the UK – all of that £50 goes to buy essential items for local people in need) if you donate or raise, for example, £500, you will actually help to provide £2,500 worth of essential items for people in the local community… that’s enough to provide a cooker for ten local families – pretty amazing!

If you raise or donate £5,000, that’s £25,000 worth of essential items you will help to provide!!…..

You can choose to give a one off donation or give a regular (monthly) donation to do great things and help to create a vital sustainable income for Charity Link.

In addition to the huge difference you will make to local people in need, benefits of partnership working also include employee motivation, engagement and team building. We will offer whatever support we can, including the provision of fundraising and promotional materials, PR support and marketing opportunities to help promote your business and highlight your support – just tell us your hopes and goals and we will help you to achieve them.  By giving your support you can also be introduced to a network of companies that support Charity Link.  The benefits are many!
