Corporate Fundraising Cornwall Hospice Care have a wealth of experience of managing corporate fundraising relationships with a variety of different size companies. We can demonstrate how your company can benefit from a partnership with a well respected Cornish charity and make a tangible difference to adult hospice care in Cornwall. Why work with us? Through our corporate supporte partnership, your employees can fundraise and volunteer for your local hospice. They'll be able to see where the money they raise is being spent and how their support is making a difference as all of the money raised will be spent in Cornwall supporting the people that live here. This can be hugely rewarding and motivating for your employees. When your company supports us, you support the cause that touches the lives of over 2000 patients and their families who access our two hospices every year. We work hard to understand your needs, making sure that you get the most out of working with us. Our team are experienced and professional, dedicated to building partnerships which can meet your company or business objectives. What we can do for you We work hard to understand your needs, making sure that you get the most out of our partnership.

We hold guaranteed places in some of the most sought after events including the London Marathon. Our events team can work with you to create exciting bespoke events to match your client and employee base. How we can work together Whether you’re an employee or an employer – there are many ways you can make a difference to local people living with life limiting illness. Charity of the Year Nominate Cornwall Hospice Care as the beneficiary of all fundraising activities over the course of the year. The length of support will have a great impact on the amount of money you raise and will encourage ownership of the cause with your staff and customers. Events will give plenty of PR opportunities to reinforce your commitment to the local community. Employee volunteering Volunteers contribute a great deal to our charity. When money is tight, you can still support Cornwall Hospice Care by giving your employees time and encouragement to volunteer for us. Volunteering helps motivate employees and is great for team building! Gifts in kind It’s not all about donating money. Equipment or services can be donated, such as IT equipment, toys, prizes for raffles, use of conference rooms, printing jobs – the list is endless. Things that don’t cost you anything can be of great benefit to us. And if you give an item to charity that is manufactured or sold in the course of your trade, you are eligible for tax relief. Sponsor an event Sponsoring a Cornwall Hospice Care event or publication is an excellent way to send a positive message. We run high-profile events from golf days to festive Santa runs - all great opportunities to show your commitment to our cause. Charitable Donations Businesses can make charitable donations under the Gift Aid scheme. For more details on the tax benefits you would receive please call 01726 66868 and ask for the finance department or discuss the advantages with your own Financial Adviser. Company-Led Events You could organise an event (big or small) involving your staff, customers, clients or even the general public. A Charity Golf Day with corporate hospitality for your clients; a staff football tournament, a fun ‘It’s a Knockout’ for staff, family and friends, a staff challenge day to encourage team building and fundraising. Join Our Events Haven’t got time to organise an event of your own? You could always get your company involved in one of our fundraising events or bring together some teams for a bit of friendly rivalry or see who can raise the most funds. Matched Funding Why not offer an incentive to encourage your staff’s fundraising efforts by matching them £ for £. This will double the amount raised, develop a sense of team effort and your company can still benefit from tax relief under the Gift Aid scheme. Payroll Giving Payroll Giving allows your staff to automatically donate to the charity of your choice from their pay packet or pension. Your company or pension provider makes the deduction, before tax and other deductions are calculated, so you do not pay tax on the income you have chosen to donate. To facilitate Payroll Giving, your employer/pension provider simply signs up to a Payroll Giving Agency, who will administer donations on their behalf. If you wish to give in this way please ask your employer if they run a Payroll Giving Scheme and complete your mandate with Cornwall Hospice Care as your chosen charity. If your employer does not offer this scheme we would be happy to attend a presentation to encourage your employer and colleagues to introduce this tax-effective way of giving to charities.
