Many organisations recognise the team building, community engagement, recruitment and client involvement opportunities offered by supporting small, unusual charities like Footsteps. In the last few years, Footsteps has received over £80,000 from corporate giving – funding an incredible 1,500 hours of Footsteps therapy. Supporting organisations have included a national marketing consultancy, a multinational toy manufacturer, an Oxfordshire law firm, a local estate agent and a small local café. All have told us how valuable working with Footsteps has been; building team spirit, developing local and national reputation as a socially aware organisation, or keeping the team fit!
I’m writing to ask if you could help Footsteps in 2019 by spreading the word at work about our wonderful charity? It doesn’t matter whether you work for a large multinational or a small local business – every donation means we’re able to offer more vital support to disabled children in need.
We understand you’re busy – particularly at work. So, if you could let us know the relevant person for us to talk to in your organisation we can do the rest. Of course, if you are happy to make contact for us, or for us to mention your connection that’s even better!
Your organisation may be able to help by:
- Making Footsteps Foundation ‘charity of the year’
- Running or taking part in a sponsored challenge event – golf days, cycle challenges, long distance runs or walks.
- Naming Footsteps as a charity in a payroll giving scheme
- Offering match-funding to help us apply to specific trusts or foundations that require this
- Running fun events like cake sales, dress-down days or quiz nights
- Or simply having a Footsteps collection tin on reception.
Some companies and organisations even have their own charitable foundation. If you, your friends or family work for an organisation like this perhaps Footsteps might be eligible to apply for funding? Please do share this email to anyone that may be able to help.
If you are able to help us make that all important first contact in your organisation, we may be able to help more disabled children get the physiotherapy that they need.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a chat about ways that you may be able to help.
