Charity of the year
Many companies find that their staff like to work together in support of a chosen charity where they can build a relationship and really make a significant impact on its work. As the only charity in the country providing free information and support to people with the most challenging communication needs, Ace Centre aims to help as many individuals and their families as possible. Over the year, your funds raised could support a specific project and Ace Centre can work with you to devise a package of support that suits your business and fulfils your company’s objectives. Choosing to support Ace Centre as your charity of the year, you will be able to see the real difference these funds make to life for children and adults with the most challenging communication difficulties – and their families
Employee fundraising and matched giving
Help build relations and boost morale by encouraging your employees to fundraise for Ace Centre in the workplace. ‘Dress Down’ days, Cake Sales and raffles are all cheap and easy to organise in a lunch hour or tea break, or you could be more ambitious and challenge different departments to enter teams in a Quiz Night or hold a social event that brings staff and their families together? Consider supporting your staff in their efforts by matching what they raise.
Spreading the word
One of the most valuable contributions companies can make is to spread the word to their employees, customers and suppliers about Ace Centre’s services and how they benefit children and adults with the most challenging communication difficulties, and their families.
This can be done very easily and at no cost by placing Ace Centre’s collection boxes on counters, having Ace Centre’s leaflets in reception areas and circulating information about Ace Centre in internal and external mailings.
The support of the business community is a valuable asset to any charity. At Ace Centre, we recognise that this relationship should not be just one way and our aim is to work in partnership with our corporate supporters to the benefit of both parties.
In return for your help to raise the profile of, and funds for, our work, Ace Centre can help you to enhance customer relations, motivate staff and increase opportunities for good PR.
