Ways to Fundraise
You could support us by raising money through sponsorships or events. You could do a sponsored walk, bike ride, or take advantage of the Cumbrian Fells and do a sponsored hill climb. Alternatively you could host a coffee morning or bake sale.
Whatever the size of your business/organisation, by fundraising or volunteering your time for Every Life Matters you can make a real difference to the lives of those who we support. Whether you want to organise a staff quiz, cake sale, sponsored event or run a marathon, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
We will come along and talk to your staff or members about our charity, what we do and what your support means to the people we support.
Choosing us as your corporate partner will enable you to work towards achieving your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives. CSR aims to ensure that companies conduct their business in a way that is ethical. With competition on the high street fierce, make your business stand out from the crowd.
Charity of the Year
Another great way to support us is to choose us as your Charity of the Year, this means that not only will you be helping a local charity raise vital funds, you will also be giving your staff something to work towards together as well as projecting a positive corporate image to staff, customers and business partners.
You will receive lots of positive PR, in print, web and social media from us and at the end of your fundraising year, we will arrange a presentation with your staff or members and feature your success as a story on our website
We rely on local support to raise the majority of the funds needed each year to provide our vital service for local carers. To help us do this, we have a number of opportunities for corporate sponsorship of our events.
In exchange for funding all or part of the event, we can offer the opportunity for your organisation’s branding to be maximised throughout.
A package would be put together for each event but some typical examples for promotion are:
- All printed literature produced will incorporate your logo
- Your logo will be included on the event page of our website
- Facebook, Twitter promotion of your sponsorship
- Your involvement will be featured in print, web and social media
