How can your Company get involved?
The way you get involved is completely up to you. Our partnership arrangements are bespoke and aim to maximise the impact for both your company as well as Rose Road. We will provide you with an Account Manager to develop ideas and work closely with you to engage your staff in the agreed charitable activity.
If you are interested in partnering with Rose Road, please contact Eleanor on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 023 8072 1202. Below are some examples of how you can work with us but please give us a call so we can understand your needs/expectations and produce a tailor made partnership to suit you.
Charity of the year
Choose the Rose Road Association and we will work with you to organise a programme of activities throughout the year. You can enter teams into our events, hold your own events such as dances or bespoke challenges, or run simple fundraising schemes at work.
In 2017 Rose Road will celebrate 65 years of supporting disabled young people in the Solent region. We are one of the best known charities in the South so aligning your brand to us can only have a positive outcome.
Brand partnerships can include:
- Inclusion on your product packaging
- Joint marketing of a specific product or service
- Donation of a percentage of profits to the charity
Volunteering and pro-bono opportunities
Staff volunteering can be extremely rewarding and can increase staff morale, teamwork and provide opportunities to gain experience.
Volunteering opportunities include:
- Undertaking pro bono work e.g. legal, accounting, training
- Helping at a fundraising event
- Providing contacts within other companies
- Gardening, driving, general maintenance, supporting the children
You can sponsor an event, a bedroom or a range of charity information, (e.g. newsletters, factsheets, events booklet) which can be a fantastic advertising opportunity.
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn or workplace giving) is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support us with a regular donation direct from their pay.
Company Tax relief
Your limited company pays less Corporation tax when it gives the following to charity:
- Donating money
- Land, property or shares in another company (shares in your own company don’t qualify)
- Employees (on secondment)
- Sponsorship payments
You can claim tax relief by deducting the value of your donations from your total business profits before you pay tax.
