There are many ways your business or group can help us to raise the £230k we need to provide vital services to people with MS each year.
MAKE A DIRECT DONATION
Donations can be made as one off payments by cheque, card or cash or split into monthly payments by standing order. Remember, companies receive tax deductions on charitable donations.
Individuals or even your whole organisation can get sponsored to take part in a challenge such as a run, cycle or skydive. Then go to www.goldengiving.com or www.virginmoneygiving.com to set up a web page to make collecting sponsorship money easy.
HOLD AN EVENT
Arrange an event or special 'Charity day' where a percentage of takings are donated. We will support the event in whatever way we can and will list it on our website.
Donate one of your company's products or services to be won in a prize draw. Customers pay a nominated amount to enter their details on a prize draw slip or simply put in their business cards. A winner is then drawn.
This allows employees to donate straight from their gross salary to us giving immediate tax relief, making their donations go further. Your employees are given the option to opt in and donate anything from £1 a month - it soon adds up.
Fundraising activities, from a dress down day to Pop Idol night, nurture a team spirit as well as raising much needed funds.
Join our 200 club from just £2 per month and support us whilst also being in with the chance to win cash prizes.
When donors give shares to a charity, they could receive substantial relief on their income tax bill as well as exemption from Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on any gains they may have made on the shares.
Pledge to match what customers donate or staff raise as an incentive for them to aim high.
A sponsorship deal can be used to reflect your company's corporate and brand values, target new audience groups and promote new products and services.
DISPLAY A COLLECTION BOX OR TIN OR OUR KNITTED XMAS OR EASTER DECORATIONS
Either by your till for customers or in your office or staff room for employees, or use it as a forfeit box for those who misbehave!!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss these or any other ideas you may have
Donations are really important to the continued running of the Ryan MS Therapy Centre, particularly as we receive no government funding.
