Fancy watching your manager shiver in a bath of ice? Want to team up with a colleague and race to the finish line?

We have lots of different ways that you and your company can support us, whether you’re a small start up or a multinational company, you can nominate Grief Encounter to be your Charity of the year.

Charity of the Year

If you are looking for a way to unite your whole company behind a great cause,  why not select Grief Encounter as your next Charity of the Year? Any company, not matter how large or small, can help to make a real difference. A partnership with us can also benefit your business:

  • Encourages team building and creativity and boosts staff morale
  • Demonstrates your company values and commitment to your community
  • Tax effective way of giving to charity

If you would like Grief Encounter to be your Charity of the Year then please get involved by contacting the Grief Encounter office at richard@griefencounter.org.uk.

Employee Fundraising

Our team are willing and able to provide support, advice and materials to assist you in the organisation of fundraising events – anything from business breakfasts to social media campaigns to climbing Everest!  We have a calendar of existing events that your team of employees can take part in, or you can organise your own event.
Here are a few top tips for your office fundraising activities:

  • Dedicate a memorable day for your fundraising activity
  • Be creative and have lots of fun!
  • Celebrate your success – shout about what you did and how much money you raised for Grief Encounter via social media and your local press

Please contact corinne@griefencounter.org.uk for more information.

Matched Funding

You don’t have to go to great lengths to show you care: match the amount of money your employees make for us. It’s as simple as that. Doing this not only shows support for your workforce, but is also tax effective.

Before entering into matched funding, ensure you set down some guidelines for your employees. For example:

The company will match funds £ for £ up to a maximum of £750 per event - this way you can regulate the amount of money you give.
Make sure your event is documented so that it can be included on the company website and newsletter, and participating employees can be acknowledged for their commitment to Grief Encounter.

Another way that your company can engage in matched funding is through the Payroll Giving scheme. If an employee is donating money to Grief Encounter through the Payroll Giving scheme then show your support for them and us by matching their donation – every little helps.

For more information, please contact richard@griefencounter.org.uk

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is a simple, flexible and tax effective method of charitable giving, which allows your employees to donate to Grief Encounter by a direct deduction from their wage.  Should you wish, a Grief Encounter Fundraising Representative would be happy to come to your company and talk about Payroll Giving.

Benefits to your Organisation:

  • Gives your employees the opportunity to donate to their chosen charity in a simple and tax effective way
  • Your business will be seen by others to be more supportive and caring
    Enhances staff morale
  • Improves your business's charitable giving and social responsibility with minimal effort, or cost to you
  • Enables you to measure the level of charitable giving that your company has helped achieve
