This is a charity that your company will choose to work with for a year in order to raise money for It’s cause. Your company may want to partner with a charity in order to: Give its employees the opportunity to be involved in something extra curricular Contribute to the local community Raise money for a specific cause If you're not sure whether your workplace elects a Charity of the Year, you could ask your head of HR or your manager. Donations of Goods We welcome other donations such as clothing, food for refreshments, gifts for young people, stationery items, arts & crafts, toys for the crèche etc. Double Your Donation Get free money for your charitable donations through work—many organisations will match their employees’ donations up to 100 percent, which means double the impact. If your firm offers this, we encourage you to think about taking advantage of it, since it’s a unique opportunity to make your money go twice as far for a cause you believe in. To find out if your firm participates, try searching your internal company website and looking for tabs with names like “corporate responsibility,” “volunteering,” or “community affairs.” You can also try entering your company’s name into Google with the word “Foundation” after it to see whether your company has its own charitable foundation. If nothing else, try contacting your HR department to see if they can help you track down special charitable programs. Pay tribute to the life of a loved one Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. It’s a positive way to help make their memory last.
