Corporate Giving ideas
If you’ve ever fancied doing some fundraising in the office- why not do it for Aware? The possibilities for fundraising are endless- you can do an office sports day, cake sales, inter-departmental quizzes or football matches or you could start a swear box. If you really wanted to go all out, why not have a Come Dine With Me style dinner party rather than going out for a Christmas meal? Or do a jailbreak as a team building exercise? If that all sounds a little too energetic, you could sign up to payroll giving! We can provide collection boxes, t shirts and posters for your fundraising event, just give Lorraine in our Belfast office a ring!
Lots of big companies also like to support local charities in their ‘Charity of the year’ scheme but often need staff to nominate a charity. Companies also like to support their staff in fundraising endeavours so make sure you tell them you’re raising money for Aware! When it comes to Charity of the Year partnerships, we can provide full and up to date resources for your HR department on good working practices for promoting positive mental health in the workplace; a full programme of training for staff and a professional PR package.
One in four of us in Northern Ireland will experience depression so helping Aware will help people in your community. It will also result in lower absenteeism from depression, stress and anxiety.
To find out what your organisation can do to help people experiencing depression contact Kieran at our Belfast office.
