Event Sponsorship

We always have a wide range of sponsorship opportunities for our events to suit every budget. If your business sponsors an event, your logo will appear on all promotional materials, giving you excellent PR opportunities.

Payroll Giving

Employees can opt in to give a small amount tax-free from their paycheque each month. These small amounts can really add up—for example, if 100 employees pledged £10 a month, St Wilfrid’s Hospice would receive £12,000 over a year. This would sponsor a Community Nurse for five months.

Matched Giving

Matched giving is a fantastic way to inspire your employees. The concept is simple: you match whatever they raise, boosting their morale by showing them that you support what they care about. Matched giving is a joint donation by staff and company: employees make an individual donation, either a percentage of their salary of a variable amount, and the company matches it, pound for pound. The amount you match is flexible and can be capped per person.

Collection Pots

Display a collection pot by your till for customers, or in your office or staff room for employees.

Our bright, turquoise pots are a brilliant way to show your support for the Hospice, and you may raise more than you expect! We have dedicated pot collection volunteers who will collect and replace your pot when it is full, and you’ll receive a certificate each Spring letting you know how much you’ve raised.

Donation Schemes

Our local business supporters have used various incentives to help raise money for St Wilfrid's Hospice. An estate agent donates £50 for every instruction in our catchment area. A local restaurant has an optional £1 donation on their Sunday roasts. One shop has a raffle that runs alongside their collection box— for each donation, the customer is entered into a draw to win a prize. There are lots of creative ways that your business could support us using a scheme—feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss ideas.
