Whether you are looking for a one-year partnership or something longer, we love to build relationships at Street Child. Our experienced team will work with you to develop mutually beneficial goals that will be valuable to you whilst also making a very real difference to the lives of some of the world’s poorest communities.
Corporate Social Responsibility – Don’t just tick the boxes…work with us to develop a CSR programme for your company that will not only differentiate you from your competitors and inspire your stakeholders, but have real impact.
Employee Engagement – There is a clear link between staff motivation and business productivity. Bring your teams together, boost morale and job satisfaction and build long-term commitment with an inspirational employee engagement programme.
Customer Engagement – Cause-related marketing campaigns can deliver real commercial benefits. Increasing your visibility and engaging your brand with customers while providing very real positive PR will also have the added benefit of raising funds for Street Child.
We offer sponsorship opportunities for our special events – including the Sierra Leone Marathon or our Winter Ball – and also our projects in country, including schools and support vehicles. We are always flexible in our approach and will work with you to find the right opportunity and funding level.
Charity of the Year – We understand that you may have established processes to partner with charities. We’d love the opportunity to submit a proposal that fits within your strategic objectives.
Sponsor an Event – From UK balls to international challenge events, sponsoring Street Child will give your brand great exposure and reduce our overheads – ensuring more money goes to supporting some of the world’s poorest children.
Sponsor a Project – We can make sure that your support goes to help the projects that have the greatest synergy with your company. From supporting children off the streets and into school, to building schools in some of the world’s most remote regions or providing training and support to family businesses, there is a project that will fit perfectly with your company’s ethos.
Corporate Donations – The simplest way to support Street Child is to make a corporate donation. Whether from funds raised by your staff, from operating profits or from a corporate foundation, we can ensure you know where your funds are going and the difference they’re making. Businesses receive certain tax relief when making donations to charities. For more information on charitable giving by companies, you can go to:
Payroll Giving – Also known as Give as You Earn (GAYE), this is a valuable long-term source of revenue which allows us to budget more effectively. Introduce us to your HR department if your company doesn’t already have payroll giving set up.
In-kind Gifts – We want to spend more money on support, not supplies. Some of the gifts in-kind that are particularly useful to us are:
- IT and office equipment for our UK and international offices.
- Prizes for raffles and auctions at our events.
- Meeting and event spaces in central London.
