Workplace Fundraising

Would your company or department like to fundraise for a local charity? Every penny will go into buying vital resources for our clients, such as hoists to lift our pupils or a Motomed Muvi to keep our adult clients moving.

Over are the times of normal bake sales, but we know you are here to step up to the challenge. Why not have:

  1. Zoom Quiz
  2. Guess the baby’s name, either a colleague or someone famous
  3. Have a Disco or dance
  4. A virtual beer tasting event

The options are endless. If you have settled on an idea, share our Virgin Money Giving or PayPal page to the participants or create your own Virgin Money Giving Page.

Additionally, contact Karin (fundraiser@garwoodfoundation.org.uk) to have a dedicated text number set up. The only thing left is to advertise this on social media and let your friends and family know so they can join you.

Payroll Giving

Through Payroll Giving, you can donate to charities tax-free and this is the most tax-efficient way to give. The donations are taken from your pay after National Insurance but before tax. A donation of £5 a month would actually cost an employee £4 from their take-home pay (if they pay 20% tax) or £3 (if they pay 40% tax).

Sponsor Events

We usually have a BBQ and a summer and Christmas Fayre. To sponsor one of our events will help us financially and will enable your brand to reach new clients.

Volunteers

Does your company support employees for volunteer events in the community? Is your company specialised in a certain field that could benefit us? Or would you just like to get out of your normal day-to-day work and don’t mind what you do? We will try to accommodate your employees in a Covid-safe way to volunteer. Please contact fundraiser@garwoodfoundation.org.uk for opportunities.

Gifts In Kind

Could you donate any items that might

  • Support our day-to-day running costs (paper, plants, ink etc.)
  • Items we could use as raffle prizes
  • Items that we could sell in our charity shops?

Work for Good

It’s the simplest way of donating to charity through your business sales, especially if you are time and resource poor.

Work for Good was set up to help charities raise funds from small businesses and offer businesses a fundraising platform that helps them to raise funds for the charities they care about – legally.
