BUSINESS COLLABORATION WITH A CHARITABLE CAUSE HAS AN ADDED BENEFIT:
It provides your company with networking and marketing opportunities, as well as increasing your presence in the community. By encouraging employee engagement, workplace morale will improve as each person feels as though they are making a difference in the community. We know that every company is unique, so our starting point will always be to have an open discussion with you to see how we can best tailor a partnership that really benefits your organisation.
Whether your company has worked with a charity before or not, we’ll make it easy for you to get involved, so if you want to recruit potential stem cell donors from within your company, choose us as your Charity of the Year partner, sponsor or enter teams into our events, or donate your time, services or expertise, please do get in touch.
We’d love to hear from you! You can contact us on 020 8747 5671 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donor Registration and Volunteering
DKMS can train your employees to register potential stem cell donors at donor recruitment drives held at your offices. This is a great way for employees to increase their knowledge about blood cancer and blood stem cell donations and engage with their colleagues.
We can work together in developing exciting employee fundraising initiatives, activities and challenges that will engage and motivate your staff.
Our Corporate partners can match employee donations and money raised through fundraising activities so DKMS will receive double the support. Match Funding can demonstrate a company’s support and commitment to causes their employees care about.
Companies can play a vital role in helping DKMS achieve its mission by holding company donor recruitment drives and making donations to fund our life saving work.
A blood stem cell donor could be found amongst a company’s diverse pool of employees, enabling DKMS to inform someone with blood cancer that we have found the life-saving match they have been waiting for. Many companies cover the costs of employee registrations or match fund donations made by their employees.
Below are just some of the companies who have supported us in this way.
Payroll Giving is a scheme run through HMRC which allows employees to make simple, tax-effective donations to any UK charity or good cause. If you pay your employees through PAYE (as most UK companies do), you can set up a Payroll Giving scheme. Donations are deducted from gross pay – before tax is deducted. This gives immediate tax relief on donations and means it costs less for your employees to donate.
Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or workplace giving) is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.
Register with a Payroll Giving agency to set up a scheme. They’ll let you know how to make deductions.
Make DKMS your charity of choice!
