There are lots of ways we can work together with your company
The payroll giving or GAYE (Give As You Earn) scheme is the simplest tax-free way for individuals to donate directly to FPA. Your employees decide how much they would like to donate to us and your Accounts Department sets up the payment. It is then deducted automatically from the employee's gross pay or pension before income tax.
This form of giving really makes a difference to planning our future activities because we receive the money on a monthly basis. Many organisations have a £-for-£ scheme, some even a £2-for-£1 scheme, where they will match or double the amount the individual pledges.
A company's charitable donations are tax deductible so why not give the money to us instead of the taxman? Simply fill in the FPA payroll giving form.
If an employee raises money doing a sponsored event, many companies then match it. Matched giving can demonstrate that a company is community minded and can be used to enhance company image, showing the caring side of business to the community, employees and shareholders. Matched giving can develop into a longer relationship or partnership with FPA, something that helps our long-term strategy.
Cause related marketing is one of the fastest growing areas of corporate fundraising. An association with FPA can help you demonstrate your corporate social responsibility; differentiate your brand from the competition, increase sales, target new audiences and increase customer loyalty.
Link your intranet to this web page and encourage staff to consider us when making a charitable donation.
We can also provide posters to raise awareness about sexual health issues.
Make us your Charity of the Year. We are a great team to work with, have some really innovative ideas and FPA is a strong brand.
