We know that the workplace can be a real force for good. Charity partnerships can help motivate staff and give you something special to tell your customers and shareholders. We can help your employees get involved in our work. We can also work directly in partnership with you, in a way that makes a real impact for both of us. With your help we can realise our vision of a full life for everyone affected by epilepsy.
Get your employees involved
Inspire your team to raise funds for us. Whether you are planning a cake bake, treasure hunt or fancy dress event, we can provide you with materials and resources to support your fundraising. Fundraising is fun and is a great way to build team spirit.
Setting up a payroll giving scheme is a great way to support the generosity of your employees and show your corporate social responsibility. Schemes are simple to set-up and administer and giving this way is tax efficient.
If you have time to donate, why not think about volunteering? We welcome corporate groups to our site in Buckinghamshire to help our residents with complex needs. You’ll develop new skills while helping others and you’ll see first-hand the difference you can make.
Working in partnership with you
Gifts and donations
If you have charitable funds, we would love to be your chosen charity should you wish to make a corporate donation. We also accept gifts in kind which could include prizes for our annual fundraising events.
Charity of the Year
If you run a 'Charity of the Year' programme, please nominate Epilepsy Society to be your new chosen charity.
We will work with you to achieve your business objectives through this partnership. We will assign you a dedicated account manager who will be on hand to work with you throughout the year and beyond.
For us 'Charity of the Year' is about inspiring and engaging with you and your employees to build a meaningful relationship. Together we can work professionally and creatively to achieve our goals to help support people with epilepsy in the UK.
We also have a range of opportunities to sponsor events, resources and publications. This is a great way to do good and raise your company's profile.
