Ten ways your company can support us
There are a variety of ways for your company to support Coram's work with children and vulnerable young people.
Here are 10 ideas from us. Let us know if there's something else you think your company could do to help children.
1. Direct support
We’ll work with you to identify a project for your company to invest in and to outline the impact this will have. You’ll receive progress reports to demonstrate the difference your investment is making.
2. Commercial partnerships
We can offer your company a way to make your product stand out from your competitors while supporting vulnerable children.
3. Employee fundraising
From apprentice-style challenges to rock concerts to national quiz tournaments we support companies in organising events their employees are proud to take part in.
4. Charity of the Year
If your company has a Charity of the Year, please consider nominating Coram.
Teams of staff can volunteer for Coram by helping with gardening or painting or by working more directly with us. Volunteering is great for team building and gaining insight into the projects your company supports.
“A heartfelt thank you for yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and found it all so very moving and interesting. I couldn’t stop talking about it and have bought the London’s Forgotten Children book.” - Coram corporate volunteer Georgie Sayer from Colt Technological Services
6. Event sponsorship
Coram hosts a range of exciting events throughout the year with sponsorship opportunities.
7. Payroll giving
One of the most tax efficient ways of giving. If your employee is a basic rate taxpayer, a gift of £5 will only cost them £4. Many corporate partners generously choose to match their employees’ donations.
8. Gifts in Kind
We have a list of good quality items we need at any one time, including products such as computers, paint and furniture. We also welcome donations of venues for our events/meetings.
9. Pro-bono support/secondments
If your company has expertise you think Coram could benefit from, or you could offer employees a secondment at Coram, please get in touch.
10. Increasing awareness of Coram’s work
We’re keen for as many people as possible to see the Coram logo and understand our role in helping vulnerable children in London and across the UK.
